Today’s pieces comes from Jennifer who’s about five-ish hours away from me in the bay area!!
Hello from Berkeley, CA! Here’s my story of how you have inspired me. This used to be one of my favorite sweaters…
until it got a hole…
I read your blog for a year until I got up some courage and began cutting!
And cutting… And pinning…
I sewed the waistband and put elastic in, kept the hem the way it was, and I had an outfit ready for date night with my husband!
I love it Jen!!
The next day, I decided to make pants for my daughter out of the former sweater sleeves. I just sewed the u-shape for the rise, and added an elastic waistband like I did for my skirt. Here she is modeling her new pants.
Jennifer, what a resourceful job you did refashioning one garment into two for your family! It’s nice to be able to use what you’ve got instead of buying something new that your kids will grow out of quickly! Woo for an A+ job!
