So at the thrift store the other day I saw this huge sweater for $1. I really like the colors and the way it opened...well it just really got my creative juices flowing...so today I made this:
It's one of those "too long to be a shirt but too short to be a dress" tops that you wear with leggings.
AND I made these uber cute leg warmers:
AND I made a bikini top as an after thought!
It all came from this very frumpy sweater:
I resized it using a very fitted T-shirt and baste stitching around it:
Once I tried it on and figured out how I wanted the sleeves and such I sewed the outline twice to prevent freying using a very small stitch on my machine.
I realized as soon as I cut off the sleeves that they would make great leg warmers, and the bikini top was made from the scraps of the leg warmers!
I think this is very cute with leggings but it is also cute with just jeans. What do you think?
