The Boring Pink Sweater

Hello Refashion Co-op. I had a super soft but very boring pink sweater on my hands. I decided to try to dress it up.

I used these cotton pajama pants to jazz up the sweater. These pants were supposed to be a cropped capri length but on me they just look like they were too short pants.

I cut the waistband off the pants and I cut strips of fabric from the legs of the pants. I added a long vertical piece to each side of the sweater.

 Horizontal pieces.               Vertical pieces.    

I  connected some horizontal pieces and made pleats.

I added the pleated fabric to the waistband of the sweater.

I added the waistband of the pants to the wrists of the sweater.

I think the striped fabric added a little fun color to the sides, wrists, and waistband of the pink sweater.

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