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)
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. There are lots of different ways to make ruffles. I sewed two basting stitches down the center of a strip of knit and gently pulled on the bobbin threads until it was the right length. 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.
