Here is a perfect example of the difference styling makes in your life. I made this cardigan a few years ago and it was published in a crochet magazine. I loved this design, as did anybody who saw me making it. I thought it was a quick cute everyday sweater that could go over jeans or a sundress - a really versatile garment. And then, the magazine came out and to be honest? my heart sank. Here is the picture that was published in the magazine:
Yep, it looks like a cabled square box.... I couldn't believe how crappy the sweater looked. I really thought that the sweater looked better on my dress form than in the picture.
Today I was checking out my projects on Ravelry and noticed someone nominated this sweater for a Crochet-a-long. It was on the Red heart website and it was being offered for free. And better yet? It has a new fabulous pattern. Remember, this is the same exact sweater in all three photos - pretty amazing isn't it?
So, when you have a boring everyday outfit on (we all have them, currently I am in exercise clothes) put on a great necklace, scarf - wear a bright coat and see how much better you feel...... I know I do!
