Anthropoli-fication Boyer Cream Cardi GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

February 25, 2009

opera houseIf you must know, I love Anthropologie. Despite the fact that there is no storefront where I live. Despite the fact that I have yet to purchase one garment from them. If I had a dime for every time I've drooled over their website....I'd have enough to buy a sweater. And hey, if you know Anthropologie that's a lot!

So, when oogling their site I often find myself thinking of ways I can alter my own clothes to look like a piece I have seen. I call it- Anthropolification. Some of them have actually come out fantastic. Some....not so much. But I thought why not share what I have attempted with all of you. This is hopefully the first of many Anthropolification how-to giveaway posts.

Below is the Boyer Cream Cardi. It currently retails at Anthropologie for $118. To the left is my version. It's basically a black button down short sleeved sweater with crochet lace trim in three thick layers.







To recreate this look, I went out to my local department store and bought a plain black cardigan on sale. The only ones I could find at discount were too large and had long sleeves. Not exactly what I wanted. BUT, if you're brave you ignore the obvious errors and take a chance.

I bought the garment and took it home. Once I got it into my sewing room and onto my dress form I pinned the extra fabric on the sides to fit my shape. I then ran it through my sewing machine and used a very tight stitch since I didn't want the sweater material to unravel. I then cut the sleeves to the same length as the Anthropologie sweater and hemmed the cuff.







opera house
Later I took a trip down to my local fabric store and bought 9 yards of white crochet lace similar to the ones used by Knitted & Knotted and pinned them to the cardigan in hanging rows.
One around the neckline, one from shoulder to shoulder, one around the waist and finally two around the cuffs. My trim was slightly smaller than the Boyer Cardi, so I doubled the flower trim to thicken the look.

opera houseAnthropologie pairs it with a pair of Grey Linen Gauchos. I didn't have any of those but I used a pair of dark grey linen pants I bought at Forever 21.

The ear rings I wore matched this sweater perfectly! They are also from Forever 21. They no longer sell them but you can find similar ones at Manic Trout.

The finished sweater is about a size small to extra small.

opera houseIn all, the total cost to make this sweater was $6. No lie. I'll admit that up close it's not exactly the same. But from a distance I think it came out pretty parallel. And who doesn't like to save $112 dollars?

If anyone has their own Anthropolification request just leave a comment with the name of the Anthropologie garment and I'll see if it's feasible.

opera houseLook for more giveaways this week!

Last day for posts is
Friday 3/08/09. Winner will be announced Tuesday!

As usual, if you would like a chance to win this sweater just link back to this post. If you have any questions see the "questions and answers" link to the right. If you use blogger just use the "create a link" link at the bottom of this post.



opera houseIf you don't use blogger, that's fine too. Just create a link on your page as you normally would and I will see it using Technorati.

Holy Mackerel! $6?! What type of supersales are you shopping? I couldn't even get the lace for that much- very impressive.

sarasophia said... Best Blogger Tips

I am in love. What a superb way of turning something unaffordable into a lovely make-at-home treasure. You have done such a good job. I could totally see myself perusing my own library decked out in Anthropolification:P I would love, love, love to win---and am linking back to your site as soon as this is posted.
I have a feeling that if you lived nearby, we would be fast friends...thanks for being so inspiring.

Lydia said... Best Blogger Tips

Linking! Wow, it really does look like an Anthro twin!

greetingarts said... Best Blogger Tips

That is simply stunning. But you know what, it looks fantastic on you. If you insist on giving this away (!), you really should make another for yourself.

Kristi said... Best Blogger Tips

That is the perfect library cardi and my boys and I just got our first library cards last week. I can see myself now the envy of all as I wear your anthropolification creation.
I heart your designs.

I am linking this to my blog now.

Becky said... Best Blogger Tips

Um the use of the Anthropolification got me hooked right there! I linked to the blog immediately. I hope to see more and more Anthropolifications here because I just can't afford the store I just lust after everything and hope that one day I can afford something from there! Please more more!!

Bee and Rose said... Best Blogger Tips

Absolutely beautiful! I have an Anthropologie store in my area and they are having HUGE sales right now...but your cardi takes the cake, sister!

Nuts To You! said... Best Blogger Tips

I am so excited that you did this! I have thought about trying before, but I haven't been brave enough. Usually I love their dresses. Right now I like the "Road Ahead Dress." I can never find material like they use. I can't believe they are charging $58 for leggings! I got mine for $6 at Target and they are great! I also like the "Palentine Capelet" as well.

Briana Ward said... Best Blogger Tips

WOW!!! This is beautiful, I love it! I look the same as the original, I can't believe you are giving it away.

Tamara Mitchell said... Best Blogger Tips

Amazing and beautiful! I am creating a link now! You are so talented...and I can't believe you made it for $6...WOW!

Michelle Kuo said... Best Blogger Tips

The second I read "Anthropologie" in your blog I was like, "AHHHHH, that's so cute!" I'm just like you, I constantly adore their clothes but will never have the money to afford them :/ But your Anthopoli-fication looks really really nice! Ha you got me all excited now. Anyways, I just posted the link up on my blog.

Oh, and I would love you with all my heart if you could make an Anthropolification of this in coral:

Emily said... Best Blogger Tips

Wow. I think I like yours better! How about making some adult giveaways for people who are not extra small? :)

Pumpkin Head Baby Co said... Best Blogger Tips

I can't fit into a small but I just wanted to let you know how jealous I am of your creativity! I am in the same boat as you as far as Anthro goes. I only wish I had your talent for creating my own. But at that cost you aren't out too much if it bombs!

Merrick said... Best Blogger Tips

Vintagesquirrel said... Best Blogger Tips

Kathleen,
You know, I just started a little series on my blog with the same concept in mind. I call it anthropologizing (sort of a play on apologizing)- which I really should do, since compared to your creative efforts, mine stuff looks, well, silly. and pathetic. Although, truth be told, I never did say I was talented...

Your sweater is an absolute anthropologie knockoff, done extremely well. Like really good conterfeit bills.
