I don't really know what to call this. But I like it. I took a giant grandpa sweater and took it in and cut off most of the sleeves.. the eerie part is that the new sleeves are actual part of what used to be the hugeness of the front section. They just flopped over into sleeves on their own. It's so simple to make.. a good pick me up project for when you want somthing fast and cute.





whatever that white thing in the second pic is, it's on the mirror and not the sweater.

so what do you think?

this is gorgeous, I have a friend whose jumpers are always cool and he has a cardigan like this (but obviously more of a male fit, & long-sleeved). it's a damn nice reconstruction, anyway, & looks great on you. I need to get in on the action... where's some stuff to cut up?? hahah.

Smiley well done

speak to you soon.
