I got a call from my new job. I actually start next Tuesday instead of Monday because of President’s Day! It’s kind-of cool that this new company recognizes even ‘minor’ holidays. Yipee!
This was a quick refashion!
Before – a sweater that reminded me of a librarian. Hence I’m holding a book for my gorgeous fashion shoot. (Because of Winn Dixie). 🙂 I’m growling at the puffy sleeves.
Step 1: Shorten the arms. I also cut off the maroon cuff.
Step 2: Stitch the cuff on the shortened arm. This was a minor pain in the arse since, obviously, the blue arm is larger up top, so the maroon cuff was too small. So I had to put a few darts in it the blue part. And it’s a SWEATER, so that was some thick stitching!
Step 3: I made some pockets out of the left over arms. Who doesn’t love pockets?!? And, when it doubt my motto is “sew a felt heart on it!”
Step 4: Ta-da! This was super easy. I feel like this is more “hipster” than dewy decimal system. However, I could be way off. Ha!
