Marching on with my 52 Garments in 52 Weeks project :-)
Sew Weekly did refashion this week, and I have a whole bag of clothes that are unwearable that I want to transform into things I love – so I picked this. It’s a sweater I used to love, but after I lost some weight it was way too big for me. I’ve become infatuated with deep plunging backs lately, and I thought it would be pretty cool if I could turn it backwards and turn it into a tank with a deep v-back.
It was really easy to do – took about an hour all together. And I think it looks quite nice :-)
