New Old Sweater



Have you been following "Embellish Knit Month" at Grosgrain? Me too! Have you been completely and totally inspired? Me too!

I finally took this old sweater below and made it into something I LOVE.



This sweater never fit very well, but it was a great color. Seeing Kathleen resize and redo so many sweaters finally gave me the courage to try it myself. (I've been a little hesitant, because, well, I've had so many failed refashioning attempts than I care to count.)



I highly recommend following Kathleen's instructions on Grosgrain for resizing sweaters. It made a world of difference in this sweater.



For the neckline, I used this tutorial and loved it. Disney rocks. I'm so glad she's back.

The best part, total cost: Free fifty free!
I had all the materials on hand!

Love your new sweater! I've enjoyed Knit Month at Grosgrain. I'm even more excited to try Disney's tutorial. :)

You did a great job ! I love the color & the ruffled neckline, so bold !

I'm following the Knit Embellished Month too.. Unfortunately, I don't have any sweater to try. Too hot to wear any sweater here. Maybe I shall try to embellish non-sweatery things :)
