Ruffle Sweater Redo

I have had a grey sweater for a number of years, but said sweater is from my PB days (Pre-Baby days).  While I still love it, it just doesn’t fit quite the same anymore.  I mean, I was no super model in those PB days, but wearing this sweater as-is in the now Post-Baby days… well, it just made me look fat.

So, refashionista hat on! (And P.S. what great timing, since there’s a Refashionista Event going on over at I Am Momma Hear Me Roar – you’ve gotta check it out)

Original sweater

Cut it in half

Sew some coordinating knit fabric onto each side
(this knit was from a dress I have had since high school … seriously)

Add a ruffled strip of knit on top of the first one.  Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
I also took in the arms a bit, so it was a little more fitted.

Now here’s a cardigan that does not make me feel fat.

  3. So sorry the link party had closed by the time you tried. I should have made it last longer. Great sweater refashion. I love the double row if ruffles. I also love that you have a cool orange wall to use for photos. How fun!
