I was fussing about not having the right cardigan the other morning—one to wear when I am a bit cold, over my jammies, while making breakfast. It needed to be soft, very thin, fitted, with 3/4 sleeves. Something I could throw over dresses and then maybe sleep as well. That kind of thing. I have about 152 cardigans and found it hard to believe that I didn't have one that met all these requirements, but I didn't. Until now.
This is a long-sleeved t-shirt (this one is from j.crew in the tissue-weight jersey, which I love to hate) that I took a pair of scissors to—and it's perfect. It's my new favorite cardigan and now I have about 3 more (and 3 fewer long-sleeved shirts) and I love them to death.
No sewing is needed. There are no seams to finish here—the jersey doesn't unravel. I have done this with both v-necks and scoop necks. I didn't add anything, I just let them hang loose or tie in a knot. Done and done. Someone take away my scissors. I'm going to wonder where all my shirts are this Fall, but for now I am thrilled.
