I realized after I started cutting that I forgot a picture. The before was your typical boxy, unflattering sweater. This one wasn't even wearable as the neckhole didn't stretch enough to go over my head!! So I needed a sweater for work so it couldn't be pull over. So I used the neck seam as my ties. Where I hemmed actually ended up ruffling. It turned out pretty nice. As seen here with my scrubs lol.  I need to trim the inside of the arms still. That'll wait til tomorrow tho lol.  And excuse the fuzzies on the sweater Smiley

Nice!
I'd like to make something like this for myself. I'm wondering what sort of stitching people are using so that the sweaters don't unravel where they are cut. Is it something fancy or just a careful zigzag? (P.S. Love the scrubs fabric).

Super cute! I like wearing little sweaters like that over my dresses but sometimes they're hard to find, never thought to re-construct one. I'm wondering the same thing as j_en though, what did you do to keep the sweater from unraveling where its cut? Cuz right now I'm just imagining a huge yarney mess if I try this.
