Sweater Love

There is one very very simple oversized sweater refashion. I got a size L Charter Club sweater at Goodwill about a month ago, thinking it would be a nice and cozy oversized sweater. And for some reason it looked good in the dressing room, but not so good when I put it on at home! So here is what I did:

1.Laid the sweater out and put my Missoni for Target dress on top, to see where it needed to be taken in:

2. Pinned it all down, cut off the excess material:

3. Using my crochet hook, I stitched up the sides (you can also do it if you set your sewing machine dial to the longest stitch)

4. I also saved the sleeves to turn them into leg warmers:

And trying it all on (don’t worry this will probably never be worn together :) ):
