I saw this two-tone cardigan over on The Clothes Horse a few months back and I just had to make one for myself. The split colors remind me of something a court jester would wear.:)
(I'm also wearing my DIY Anthropologie-inspired scarf flats in this photo.)
Supplies for the two-tone cardigan:♡ Two cardigans. I bought mine at Target.
♡ Double-fold bias tape (Here is a print-out you can use to make bias tape.)
♡ Straight pins
♡ Sewing machine (You can sew by hand if you want, it will just take a bit longer.)
First you need to take your cardigans and cut them down the middle. I found it helpful to cut along the line of the knit.
Next, line up the cut ends of the cardigan together and unfold the bias tape. Pin the bias tape and the cardigans together.
Then stitch up the bias tape line. After you have one side stitched, fold over the bias tape and then stitch down the other side, securing the cut ends of the cardigans inside the bias tape.
And that's it! You've got a unique twist on a traditional wardrobe staple. :)
*Update: (For Killustrator's comment, here's an inside shot of the sweater.) :) I didn't leave room for a seam allowance, I just sewed a 1/3'' seam over the cuts. Hope this helps!
