Strangling Sweater Recon December 11, 2008

When I saw this soft, pretty, comfy-and-a-bit-oversized angora sweater at the thrift store…I had to get it. For $3, that’s a lot of comfy-cozy-softness…and it’s even pink. 🙂

Inspiration came from New From Old: How to Transform and Customize Your Clothes and it was incredibly easy to do. Basically, you cut the turtleneck along the seam, add binding (I used some scrap stretchable lace that was in my notions bag) and add beads (again, I had some leftover from a previous project.) And that’s it! Instead of a strangling turtleneck, the sweater now has a graceful shawl collar with some funky beading. Not bad for 30 minutes of effort, eh?
