Hello sweater dress!! How I've missed seeing you, aside from my Golden Girls reruns where Blanche Devereaux owns stock in them. (She also owns stock in cr√™pe dresses with beads which you'll be soon seeing.)
I really couldn't pass this one up because the top of this sweater dress was pretty rockin'! I loved the white mohair V-patches and loved the ruched shoulders, so clearly I had to make it work. Wanna see how? Mini-tutorial begins now...
Step #1- Cut off excess sweater dress as fast as your hands can go.
Step #2 - Enjoy a mini celebration (ie. bottle of Pacifico, yelling "woo hoo" as loud as possible, watching reruns of The Office - feel free to enjoy all or none of these. I chose all) as you wave buhbye to the rest of that pink knit fabric.
Step #3 - Pin the raw edges under in preparation for sewing. (Since this knit sweater material was beginning to fray and loosen, a hem was necessary to add.)
Step #4 - Sew up those loose ends!
Step $5 - Put on that newly transformed sweater and channel your inner Blanche.
The perfect end to a slightly atrocious beginning. See, we'll leave the before image to my TV friends because if they threw a party and invited everyone they knew, they would see the biggest gift would be from me and the card attached would say, "Enjoy the sweater dress. xx M"
