This fall I have been SPICING up some old sweaters- breathing life into them by adding embellishments!
I will be posting these sweaters all through the winter- to give some fresh projects for those long winter months!
This is my first sweater!
I bought it last year on ebay. Its a great vintage bright yellow sweater. It was a little plain and honestly I didn't wear it all that much.
After going through my grandmother's scarves I decided to use one of the shorter ones as an embellishment to this sweater. It was wide so I was able to cut it in half in order to make it go all the way around the sweater. I removed the buttons from the sweater and with my sewing machine I attached the scarf and hemmed its edges.
THEN I did a little couture hand sew- around the top to form the bow- to make it just right!
I'm going to wear it with a purple dress, some tights and my funky brown leather boots- THAT - coincidentally have purple fabric on the back of them with a yellow stitch! Perfect for Work!
ITS all about reinventing the old and making it new!
Its good for the environment and GREAT for your wallet!
