I LOVE 90s clothes. I think I've been watching too much Saved By The Bell/Fresh Prince/Boy Meets World lately. I've just been dying to get some grunge stuff for the fall. I'm also broke, and too lazy to go to the thrift store (it's 4 miles away, and I have yet to get my license). So I found an old plaid wool blanket in my basement and realized that it would make an incredible sweater. I put this together in about two hours. It's so comfy and incredibly warm. I just wish the temperature here would drop below 90. To keep with the grunge style, I left it a bit unfinished with no pockets or buttons, though I did add a collar. It's big enough so that if I really want to close it up, I can tie it. Actually I could safety pin it if I wanted to I guess...hmmm.
So here are the pictures:




I left the original blanket stitch on the bottom and the cuffs. It's so cozy!!

hahaha... i'm pretty sure i had a jacket EXACTLY like this in '94... except mine had buttons (i never used them though; the jacket was constantly tied around my waist, which was ~super fashionable~ in my circle). love it!

I spent my teen years in the 90's and grunge was awesome....I wish I could still be that sloppy Smiley You did a great job and also it's very creative.

Thank you!! I need inspiration to make more. I really want to make a sundress next. Kind of like the one Alicia Silverstone wears in the "Cryin'" video. AN I found these SPECTACULAR grunge-esque shoes on etsy:

Haha! I love it! Yeah, I also miss the cold, being here in Florida  Tongue. Today the temp was like 120, or something like that. I'm hoping that if maybe I make enough cool weather clothes, the temp will go down  Grin.I love the blanket stitch detail. Good job!!
