Great idea and they look fab.Like the white cutting mate may i ask where u purchased it. Thank-you.

Thanks dollieoh.
I bought the mat 16 years ago at Fabricland which doesn't even exist anymore. I did see essentially the same thing here, though.

I am floored.  I didn't know you could do such a thing to make the sweater look even better.  Wow, thanks.

I stumbled on this from Cut Out + Keep....I haven't been on Craftster in a while (didn't get any email notifications about anything so it was easy to get distracted).  I looked through the pages, and years your sweater and tut's been up, and I must add to the praise!!! What a wonderfully simple, yet so versatile way to transform a sweater.  I love it!!  You should do a small self-published book of different versions, and other sweater recons and repurposed stuff cuz you definitely have great ideas! 

Ps if you're on Facebook, Ravelry and Flickr, look up my group Stitchin' Misfits and join and post your stuff, and say hi!!

Thank you Shelley, I'm honored. I hope people continue to post their versions here because I just love seeing them <3

I hear you about all of the distractions out there. I've been known to distract myself right out of crafting time! Ironic?
I've probably run across Cut Out + Keep but I really don't remember. And I certainly didn't know my sweater made it up there. Wow. Can you clue me in on how to find it? I'm so interested to see what people are doing with it and my searches have gotten me nowhere.

I will definitely be joining your FB group. My online presence has been minimal lately and I'm missing the community. Thanks for the invite. I've got some new ideas simmering so hopefully be posting soon.
I'm enjoying looking at your Craftster posts, too. The Sweet Pea Shawl is gorgeous! I'll look forward to getting better acquainted.

Thanks again for your kind words and encouragement.

I made a version of this sweater from this horrible pink thing I picked up from the thrift store last year as a possible piece for a costume for an Indiana Jones party...it was far too '70s to work for my '40s idea, so it sat in my closet for a while. 

I started thinking about making it into a cardigan kind of thing but ended up doing something a bit different.

Thank you for this tute! While I was home my SIL gave me a garbage bag full of old clothes in it was a giant sweater that I used for this.

Here's mine, ignore the orange shirt. I wish I would've had a thinner sweater to use but I can't complain about free now can I?

What a nice tutorial!  Good idea to make even outgrown baggie sweaters more flattering!
