Last week I introduced a skirt I was conflicted about keeping.
I decided to wear it to a baby shower to make my decision. It ended up matching with a sweater I just purchased so I have to keep it, at least for a couple more seasons. Now to find the right boots.
This week I have two sweaters that have stayed, unused, in my drawer for at least a year. They were useful when the collared shirt/sweater look was fashionable. I actually really hate the neck line but I keep them, for cold weather days. We’ve had many cold weather days, and I still can’t bring myself to wear them.
When I visited the blog, Made It On Monday, and saw her sweater turned cardigan post, I knew I had to refashion my sweaters. Surprise, surprise, I actually got one done. Well, mostly done. I decided it needs buttons.
I should have made the bias around the neck line more narrow but it is ok. Without buttons, it hangs open and looks a little off. I love the fabric I found to coordinate with the plainness of the sweater. I chose a blue/gray plaid fabric for my gray sweater but I also started making a skirt with a piece of remnant fabric that cost about $3. I have decided to coordinate the sweater with my new skirt.
