The Blah Brown Sweater

Hello Refashion Co-op. I have seen sweaters and sweatshirts with lace and trim lately and decided to                                                  make my own before cool Fall arrives.

                      I started with this shapeless boring brown sweater.It is just so ... blah.

I took it in so it wasn't quite so shapeless and baggy.

I sewed this small lace tablecloth inside along the bottom hem. It seems to be a soft polyester, so fraying won't be a problem.

This is the finished sweater, ready for cool Fall days.

For more details go to I Can Work With That . And thanks for reading.

Thanks so much for showing that you gathered the lace. The gather really adds to the technique. This is definitely on my list.

I've seen the same project and technique! I used lace to lengthen a nice casual T-shirt, and I want to try it with a sweater. I just need more lace. Great job.
