that did actually occur to me, but I couldn't find anything that had similar-ly shaped shoulders, so they didn't really line up properly, but oh well, I tried it on with the pins in [it hurt....] and it seemed to be a good shape, so now I'm sitting by the pc taking my wee heart out Smiley with bright pink thread tooo, lol Smiley

oh and thankyou serac tooo, I shall search out my sewing machine manual + investigate stitches, hehehe thankyou Smiley

I am try to resize my old school jumper [school starts again here one week today Sad], due to it being an old bag, bleh, and because its knitwear I'm wondering if I'm going about the right way to do this. So far I have laid my jumper flat on the ground and pinned it in to the shape I would like it to be, I was thinking I could sew this shape, and then cut away the extra material. But my jumper is knitted, so will it all fall apart and unravel?  Huh Can anyone help me please?

I have pictures!

icky, just look at it, I don't feel comfortable at school, especially when I'm wearing a bag....meh


thats it lying on the floor


a closeup of my terrible pinning

Help me please? Huh pleaseeeeee





EDIT Thankyou very much for your help guys!


the finished jumper!


Close up of stitching, although you can't see it very well

yay for non-bag-ish jumpers! Cheesy
