I am so going to do this to some of my sweaters - they are unflattering so I only wear them at home - I bought a bunch of patterns for knit shirts that have a higher waste and wrap around design, and I've been putting them off - I can do the same thing by reconning a knit sweater, with much less work!

I have big T-shirts that I thought to resize with cutting the sides and reshaping with a decorative panel on the sides (saw that here on Craftster), but with my short torso, maybe cutting just under the bust and inserting a band would be flattering, too.  This also gave me an idea for making a short sleeved T-shirt into 3/4 length.

Wow - I love this!  What a super catalyst for generating ideas!

Thank you!

I know I personally love finding things in stores that look exactly like things I've made in the past and then laughing at how expensive they are! Well, I was perusing the internet (oh StumbleUpon, you bring me such joy...) and I found this!

I personally think yours is much cuter, and certainly didn't cost $110!

HA! I love seeing stuff like this...as if making original looking clothing was some kind of mystical thing. And you're right. I think my gray one cost 80 cents!  Grin
I have to go see if you made one!
