I wish they'd show their clothing items on models.  It's hard to picture what things would look like on & what the fit is like when they're photographed just hanging or laying on something.

I had a very similar cardigan from Antthony I bought on HSN years ago.  I don't know what possessed me to buy it as I never wore it once.  I recently put it in a donation bag.

It's lovely. It's very feminine, appearing of an earlier time, like something from a vintage shop.  


Would love to have the natural color, but I doubt I'd wear it often enough to consider purchasing. You couldn't just throw it on over anything. 


Coldwater Creek has some unique items. You don't see yourself coming and going.


I have a jean jacket from there that has people stopping me everywhere I go asking where I got it. I've never seen one even remotely close to it.  It's beautiful.

Re: Openwork Cardigan

[ Edited ]

That style cardigan is really easy to make.  Over the years, I've made both knit and crochet versions.   


Basically - it's a knitted or crocheted flat circular piece.  There are "slits" left on either side of the circle and sleeves added later.


Leave off the sleeves and use a colorful variegated yarn - you can make yourself a really "jazzy" vest.



For knitters and crocheters .... 


Garnstudio dot com is one of the many websites where you can find patterns for circular cardigans.

It does and it's made the same way - large open-work circle.

Love that cardigan. It looks good in dark or light, and is something I would wear.

I have been debating whether to get this lovely sweater or not.  It's pricey, but so gorgeous!

Love both.  


The second one is a very unique color, which I love.

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).

It's very pretty. I really like the shawl collar and the details in the back. Alas, open front, cascading sweaters are on my do not buy list. And of course, I have seen many of them in pretty colors I like. But I am really trying to keep to my resolution to buy fewer items now that I am retired.

I really like the second one in that color.
