Yowza! I would never have imagined that those little daisies could be put to such good use!

Wow, Georgene, I don't know how I missed this review! Your sweater is absolutely stunning. Very vintage-looking. I wish I could be so creative!

How did I miss this review earlier? Glad I saw it when I finally read Sherril's pants review.... This sweater is so wonderful! It is right in style alright. How I wish I could be this creative! Thanks for the inspiration Georgene.

What a great idea!!! I have a pink cashmere sweater that is in need of similar treatment. Thank you for the inspiration. -Ann

There are lots of beaded and embellished tops out there at retail right now, and I thought this was a nice alternative to going blind doing your own beading. My local independant fabric store got in a shedload of beaded trims and fringes in the last few months, and I have been drooling over them. Sometimes its hard to figure out how to incorporate them into your garment, though. I thought you all might like to see how this one just grew, kind of all by itself. Its was sort of an adventure.

Great example. I need to get adventurous & try using more trim. I made a nice green dress that is just too green; I need to break it up. Not certain I'm ready to try this just yet, though!

Wow Georgene! You completely changed the look of that sweater. It looks like it was a fun project. Great job.

Very cheerful sweater. What a great way to take a so-so top and make it into something wonderful.

I love the creative way you've "tarted up" this sweater. Looks like something you might find at Anthropologie.

Very cute, and what a good idea to 'improve' things we would never otherwise like enough to wear.
