The Ooh-La Lace Cardigan from Sundance
I had completely forgotten about this store until a friend mentioned it the other day (thanks Joni). It's a great source of inspiration - lots of cute things!
I LOVE this dress (and it's called the Fairytale Dress!), but, alas, it's $228 - don't see this in my future anytime soon
The lace cardigan looked like something I could re-create though, so a quick trip to the thrift store yielded a beige sweater (actually it has a goldish hue which I didn't realize until I got home).
I used my new favorite method to turn it into a cardigan.

I picked up the black lace at the craft store - it was $1.50 for a huge roll - it will last me a while. I pinned the lace in place and machine stitched it on - my lace was wide so I only did one row, unlike the inspiration piece which had 2. I also added mismatched black buttons down the front for a little added quirkiness.
I used a safety pin on the back side of one of the buttons to hold it closed. I could have done a hook and eye but was feeling lazy and you don't see it anyway.
