The Rorschach Test Sweater

Hello Refashion Co-op. I found this dress on the clearance rack. It was marked down to almost nothing. I think because the top was so big and loose and the bottom was super tight. It was so tight I couldn't post a picture of myself in it. 

The design looks like ink blots to me, like a walking Rorschach test. 


You can see how the top and bottom are a little bit mismatched in size. This skirt revealed way too much but the sweater top was so soft and cozy. I cut the skirt portion off. I left a 2 inch waistband on my new sweater.


I used my machine to attach the raw edge of the skirt to the neck of the sweater. 


I made sure the finished outside of the skirt would show when it was worn and not the inside seams. It is so soft, it drapes down very nicely. It is like a super soft infinity scarf.


Thanks for reading, for more details and pictures go to, I Can Work With That.

Too cute! I bet I can find at least one dress in the stash with the same too small problem. Thanks for sharing this great idea.
