I love this. Thank you for the tute. I did this to a cashmere mens sweater and it's my new favorite piece of clothing.
You need to post it here. I'd love to see it!  Shocked

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!

Isn't that the greatest thing about these types of projects? I'm a knitter, too, and now I look at all the sweater patterns I like and wonder "could I do that as a recon?" All of a sudden a year long project only takes 2 hours! YAY!

I have been obsessed with making these sweaters. My husband's cashmere sweaters are not safe right now. I love your idea, thank you for sharing it. I'll send pic's as soon as possible. Cheesy

This is such a great idea! I can't wait to try it. Hhmmmm, I'm pregnant, Do you think I could pull off this same idea in a maternity style?  Huh

Absolutely! with a big enough sweater it would just hug your tummy... OR ... you could use a second sweater and cut triangular gores to give it a flared look. If you do the gores be sure to let the hem dip down lower in the front. Hope to see you posting soon!

I really love what you've done here and I'd like to try it.  I'm wondering how big of a sweater I should be looking for?

Thanks

Thank you, thank you!  As soon as I saw this I had a fever to go to Goodwill and make use of your totally clever tutorial.

I came home with this:



and am wearing this to work today:



(Although actually I took off the midriff belt and I look like this.)  All the photos are here.  Do you mind if I post a derivative of your tutorial on my blog, giving you full credit of course?
