I’ve had this incredibly soft (and now very worn-in!) sweater for about 5 years and every Fall, when I pull it out of storage, it somehow feels even cozier than the year before! So many fond memories of playing in the snow in Germany, sipping hot cocoa by a bonfire at a friend’s farm and curling up with a good book during a Winter storm is attached to this sweater for me.
This October I started thinking about how I could give it a little update without compromising the comfy factor! (i.e. nothing that would make the sweater unwearable for entire Winter weekends spent cuddling on the couch!)
My first thought was to add some delicate eyelash lace to the neckline. I found the perfect lace in a pretty, dark gray on Etsy about 2 weeks ago HERE.
I cut two pieces to the size of the neckline…
…And pinned it every couple of inches to the inside edge of the sweater…
…then I sewed it down with a simple hand stitch. The whole process took maybe 30 minutes.
