Winter Renegade Cardigan

This is one of my favorite projects to date. I’ve been needing a black cardigan for a very long time and with winter still approaching (in Miami), this was the best time to make it.
Obviously, this is not your basic black cardigan. With my style and taste, I had to spice it up a few notches. I’m a big fan of high collars, so I added one in pleather. Since the collar is surprisingly high, it converts to a folded collar, which is great, because that wasn’t intentional. So it can be worn two different ways. The placket for the buttons is also constructed from pleather and the welt pocket (at the chest) and closure too. The waistband around the bottom of the jacket is applied perpendicular to the top and closes with a metal latch hook. Best of all, the sleeves can be pulled up for a more casual look.


  1. That is style, flare, class, and great craftsmanship...all in one cardigan. Great job!!

  2. I liked your jacket the color and the style i think it can be carried with different kind of dressing can you please explain me of what fabric it is made of.

    1. Hi. It's a stretch jersey material. The other is a vinyl that looks like leather.
