I love all the pretty ceations that Sachiko from Tea Rose Home comes up with. She shared this great tutorial on how to turn a sweater into a jacket. I thought I would attempt something similar with a sweater my Mom bought me when I got my first job out of college....7 years ago. So this is no spring chicken of a sweater and I thought it needed a little umph.
I started with my sweater and an old t-shirt.
**Side bar: I like math so this measure, divide, multiply, take derivative stuff is just easy for me. I know that most people don't like math (i.e. my hubby) and freak out when they see numbers that they have to do something with. All that being said, I hope you don't find it too simplistic that include these instructions.
Finally I sewed both sides of the fabric to the sweater.
I can't wait to wear this sweater with a black tank top this fall!
