Tutorial: How to Make a Floral Kimono Cardigan

I know summer is ending soon, but lately I have been seeing these gorgeous light weight floral kimono cardigans everywhere and I thought to myself... I have a blouse that I can easily turn into one! So, I rummaged through my bags and bags of clothes and found this lovely floral blouse I had for quite some time. By far one of the simplest, easiest alteration and really took no time at all!

The before!


The after!




The back stayed the same since I only had to cut the front.


I wore my cropped bustier I made about a year ago, with some high waisted shorts and a tan belt. I kept the look simple so the floral print can stand out.






You can basically turn any kind of top into a cardigan with this method. I am so in love with this kimono inspired cardigan!

  1. Oh my goshh! What a brilliant idea! I have a slight fear of cutting my old clothes I no longer want, so I always end up giving them to charity! Never thought of turning a shirt into a cardigan by cutting the front off lol. Great post darling, you look ever so lovely! :)

    Much love, <3
