Black crossover wrap jacket/Cardigan


 

Hi Huns...


Move over granny cardigan I'm bringing in a new perspective...

Gone with the days when wearing a cardi was so grannified and you wouldn't be caught dead in one...WELL!...Not anymore...I mean the cardi has evolved...There's is many many cardigans out there that have been killing it on the runway to the high street...

(Mumshandmade) just to mention off the top of my head...


But back in the days sewing was soo uncool....And to be honest Its was something peeps use to associate with your ol' Granny...Well i must of been an ol' Granny for a looooooong time then...Wise before my years...I LOVED IT THEN N I LOVE IT NOW!... granny n all...High five grannies X...I mean i was sewing when it wasn't kool...Cutting up my mothers velvet curtains to make fancy slippers made out of just velvet and cardboard with aaaaaaLOT! of pva glue...Snatching her negligee while she not looking...then getting a whoopin' for it....


Well my barbie had to have the best of clothes.....Aaaah those where the dayz..Aye!...Minus the whoopin' of course...

Despite that, mumma took a loving interest and saw i had a keen eye for sewing, being all creative and stuff...So she bough me my first ever sewing machine just aged 10 and then followed it up with my 1st ever mannequin aged 12...Well of course children do what children do...the novelty wore off...Wanting to do and be many other things including being a PILOT!...hehe funny aye!....But in the end all roads led back to sewing....Sewing claimed victory on me and prevailed....I came running back to it several years later and here i am....Just goes to show doing what you truly love always prevails in the end...So for those out there on the brink of giving up...Your passion...Or whatever it is for the good of you...DONT!....KEEP-ON-GOING!...
