I’m a huge fan of cropped cardigans. Like, HUGE! hehe. I just think they’re such a useful thing to have in your wardrobe, especially when you’re pregnant. I love that can completely change the look of an outfit, and i love cropped ones because they sit so nicely above your baby bump! Wearing a normal cardigan can be kind of awkward when you’re pregnant, and a lot of maternity ones, just look, kind of odd (you know?!). The other thing i like is that they’re not as hot as normal cardigans, so you can wear them in summer… and when you’re nursing (maybe over one of these!)
That’s why a cropped cardigan is the perfect solution!
Even better, you can make one from an old or thrifted cardigan. Lets do it!
I love cardigans, but when you’re pregnant your options are either to wear them open constantly, or wear a cropped version. This cardigan however, is roomy enough to wear closed over your baby bump, (even at 40 wks pregnant – like these pictures of me), and when you’re no longer pregnant, it works wonderfully as a grandpa style oversized cardigan. I’ve based this tutorial on a size medium – so if you’re significantly smaller or larger than that you’ll need to adjust the dimensions.
