well, this isn't a GREAT OR COMPLICATED recon, but i post it to give ideas for all the HANDY BUT NOT REALLY CREATIVE craftsters (like me:))

so, my mom bought me this nice turttle neck sweater from a second hand shop, and its really nice, but i'm taking thyroid hormones replacement pills, and they make me get really hot easily (specially my face) so i haven't wear turttle necks in a while Tongue

i decided to just cut the neck off, and don't think it twice Cheesy
i don't think it will unravel because i left the neck "bottom seam" (i dont know how to explain)
so i had a perfectrly good turtle neck and didn't know what to do with it, so, i used it to make the sleeves longer:
cut it in half and sew it to the end of the sleeves
the seam is far from perfect but i don't care Cheesy

(the cut turttle neck)

well, that's it
thank you so much for reading and posting, and have a great night

i hope it gives you ideas, i allways apreciate yours Smiley

Saludos para todos Smiley

Cute! Is it really sparkly, or is that a trick of the camera?
