My husband gave me his FOX sweater.
Yes it's a rip-off bought on a black market.
But he wore it for about 10 years and now the hem was getting to tight to get it over his shoulders.
And now my time of wearing it has started:
This is before:
What I did:
I ripped EVERY seam... turned the hems so they were as new again.
The front became the back, but without the pocket.
The back became the front, but now with pocket.
Because the hem for the body part was also a bit tight for me I decided to make into a vest.
I used a zipper from an old jacket of mine.
I used a well fitting sweater to cut the pieces.
And of course I got some support from our fabric loving cat!
(she never lies on the clean laundry, only on pieces of fabric!)
This is after:
I love it! It's tight, and warm, and cosy ánd stylish enough to be authorized to wear it outside the house. (remember this sweater?)
Did I say I love it already? But I'm not sure if I should make the hood smaller. What do you think?
