Sewing, Refashioning, Repurposing & Thrifting Through Life

Thrifted Good Buy: Cardigans

I find one of the best things to thrift is the trusty cardigan. Cardigans, unlike sweaters, don’t get as much wear because people tend to put them on and take them off quite regularly. They just don’t stay on for as long as sweaters do so they tend to be in much better condition. Here are a few I’ve thrifted. I rarely wear blouses in winter so I really look forward to wearing a light top or blouse with a cardigan on top. I think they’re perfect for spring.

Baby blue 3/4 Sleeve


Cream Diane von Furstenberg. When I brought this home, I didn’t notice a small tear in the left shoulder. A few stitches and you can’t even tell!

And my absolute favourite, this beautiful merino wool cardigan from Italy. This is so incredibly soft and I love the detail of the ties at the top.
