I got this frumpy sweater from the thrift store and originally wanted to take in the sides to make it fitted and hack off those awful sleeves to turn them into cap sleeves instead. So I started to do that, but the material was so damn rough and itchy (acrylic and "frise" ??) that I decided to just cut off the cute part and sew in onto an old top. And here we have it:

It's a little off kilter, but I don't care cuz I think it's way cute anyway!  Smiley

What an adorable collar! You look like you belong in an anime movie! Wink I like it! I can't stand itchy fabrics either, so good choice on just keeping the collar...
