Quick Sweater ReMake
I don't usually sew clothing items, I'm much more comfortable with small accessories. But, this weekend I did attempt a very simple sweater remake. I had been looking for a taupe cardigan to wear with skirts, dresses, and also jeans. You'd think it would be easy enough to find, but I wasn't having any success despite hitting 2 large malls and several other stores like TJMaxx, Target, and Marshalls.
But, I did find this V-neck pullover at Macy's. It was the perfect color and it was on sale! So, I thought it might be a good candidate for a remake.
I simply cut it straight up the center and then serged the cut edges.
I wore it yesterday, and I'm happy with how it turned out. I'm debating about whether to add a closure of some sort. Maybe a little hidden hook and eye, or a small ribbon tie, or possibly a vintage button with loop.
How about you? Have you attempted any clothing remakes lately?
