Check out my newest thrifted $1 sweater dress!
I love that dark blue and those bracelet-length sleeves! I was also intrigued when I discovered I’m a size 12!
With temps dropping below freezing, I just couldn’t bring myself to keep this as a dress. Plus, I have plenty of blue dresses already!
Do you know what I don’t have nearly enough of?
Cozy warm sweaters!
That’s right! Time for a sweater dress to sweater refashion!
First, A big chop had to happen!
Edit from the future: I ended up turning the bottom of that sweater dress into a cute sweater skirt!
I got to hemming the bottom of my new sweater.
I used a zigzag stitch and stitched riiiiight on the edge of my new hem to keep it from fraying.
Yay! My sweater was done…but it wasn’t terribly exciting. :/
So, I reached for my spool ‘o ribbon and cut off two different lengths.
Next, I stitched each raw edge of each piece of ribbon down.
I pinned the ribbon bits onto my sweater…
…then I stitched them both down!
I pressed my ribbon accents down, and my new sweater was ready to head off to hang out with my friend, Michael Krajewski!
I really like this one! I think my new sweater is sort of a more modern take on a 1960’s style!
After hanging out for a bit at Michael’s studio, we hopped on over to Motor Supply Company Bistro for some tasty cocktails!
The weather outside was frightful, but we stayed happy and cozy with our warming libations!
