Tiny Bows Sweater


Have you seen those sweaters around recently with teeny tiny bows stitched on them? Like this Anthro one. I've been lusting after them for a while so decided to make one.

I say "make one", but all I did was sit down with a couple of episodes* of House of Cards and handstitch some pre-bought ribbon bows onto a pre-bought sweater and voila! Anthro-inspired chic. 

(*It didn't actually take two hours to make, it's just that I spent most of the time glued to the screen.)


I must admit that there was a moment once I finished that I thought I'd gone mad, that a sweater covered in bows was mad, and that only a mad person would wear it... but then I put it on and it actually looks really cute. 

So I'm wearing it :)

[Soundtrack: 'You Might Need Somebody' by Shola Ama - we've been listening to a lot of nineties R n B in the studio recently!)

  3. Yeh! Soundtracks are back! I was planning a Coco dress in my head with a row of bows down the back. Not decided on my soundtrack for this task, might dig out a bit of 90s Indie. X

  6. Ohhh I wanted to do the same exact thing, but wasn't sure about the result! Zooey Deschanel was wearing the same exact sweeter in the tv show "New Girl" (except the sleeves were also covered with bows). This is so cute! :)

  10. I think we need photo evidence of you wearing it, just so we know just how cute it is :D I love this! I think little black bows stitched onto a short red jumper would look super cute too, teamed with a black skirt...there's an idea... xx

  13. This is a really adorable idea. I love how simple it is to recreate but it looks so expensive. :]
