Hello Fashion Lovers,
I paused this post till today because Nov 7th is the anniversary of my birth 😀 and it has been way too long I made a big deal about it. I am not big on celebrating my birthday and half of the time I spend it at work anyways so here goes my attempt to make this day special. I would like to say thank you to those who have already sent messages, called, wrote poems, sang (lol) e.t.c and those who are yet to. I appreciate each and everyone of you. <3 mwah <3
Today’s post is extremely simple, as the topic suggests, it will literally take you 5 minutes or less and requires no sewing or tailoring skills. I picked this project because honestly I was intrigued, a little fascinated and extremely curious especially to find out if it really does provide any warmth. These Knit/Cashmere detachable bad boys from the Calvin Klein Fall campaign are sold for over $400 (yikes). I saw it first on the ever beautiful Beyonce Knowles- Carter and then went searching for its origin. It comes in several colors and I decided to have mine in Blue which is in my opinion the best color in the world *grin*.
WHAT YOU NEED
- Cable Knit Sweater (with Raglan Sleeves)
Example of a sweater with raglan sleeves can be seen in the picture below. Notice that the sleeves continue on to the shoulder.
Lay your sweater flat on the floor.
- Cut off the sleeves right up through the shoulders. Make sure to cut above the double knitting to avoid fraying of the wool.
Keep scrolling to see how I styled it. These can be worn over a blazer, another sweater for contrast or with a dress on a nippy night out. The dress I’m wearing is also a DIY so give me a shout if you’d like me to put up a tutorial on that too. Happy D-I-YING folks!
Verdict: It does keep you slightly warm.
