Quite awhile ago, I pinned this tutorial - instructions to make a cardigan out of a too-small shirt or sweater. And it's NO-SEW! Right up my alley. But I didn't really have a shirt to use.
Well, a couple weeks ago, I came across this sweater at a second hand store.
There was a sale so it was only 50 cents! And it is super cute and in my colors. The only problem? It's an extra small. I'm more of a small-medium kinda girl, but I thought I'd give it a try. I was in a hurry and didn't have time to try it on.
I tried it on and it was NOT attractive. Waaayyy too much spare tire enhancement. So I was a little bummed and not willing to go on a diet. Then I realized I could try out this pin! I picked up some hem tape for a couple dollars and went for it! It was a little scary cutting down the middle of the shirt, but I managed. Here's the result:
Very happy with my new sweater! Great deal and I can't wait to make more in the future!
