I am a huge fan of Oprah not only for her soulful advice but her keen sense of fashion. Who else could host a show once a year of their most wanted and create such a frenzy around these items. Anyway I was watching her recent show where she interviewed Michelle Obama (another one of my favorites) and instead of taking in the conversation I was fascinated with Oprah's sweater!

All I could do was gawk at it and wish it was a part of my wardrobe. It was during this time that I realized I too had a cute cardigan that was in need of a little face lift. Epiphany - I was going to turn this cardi into Lady O's cardigan.
I found this fab ribbon at Acmoore it was $7.99 a little more than I would have like to spend but with the 40% off coupon it was doable.
I began by folding the ribbon back and forth upon itself and then wrapping it around itself to form the flower. I tacked it in place and then began to box pleat the ribbon working my way around the neckline. I found that it a bit challenging to make the turn to run the ribbon down the front of the cardigan but after a few trys I achieved the look I wanted. Leave me a comment to let me know what you think, and I would love to hear about your cardi make overs.
