i made this awesome cami out of a vintage slip, and i just adore it!! i wouldn't sell it if it wasn't just a little too small for me!  but it is so pretty!! all pale pink and deliceous!





i found this great sweater, but it was huge and batwinged and awful in shape.  but i couldn't say no to the pattern!  so i made it awesome!

the slip was pretty awesome as is, so i just cut it to the length i wanted, and then CAREFULLY removed the lace from the bottom of the slip, and sewed it around the newly hemmed bottom! Cheesy

How did you resize the sweater? Did you find it hard to deal with because it's knit fabric (I'm assuming it's knit fabric)? What are tips to share for others who want to do the same thing. I'm intrigued...

So many ugly sweaters can be saved!

the sweater was a really tight knit, so it wasn't terrible to work with at all... it was acutally much easier than i expected.  i basically resized it like a tshirt. took it in, took the sleaves off, alterred them, then sewed them back on.  it was a quick and easy venture actually.  any commercially made sweater would be game for resizing i would say.  no christmas designs tho, no saving them!! hahaha
