One of the perks of Boyfriend losing weight is that now I have a ton of his too-large clothes to upcycle. This used to be his sweater, but now it’s mine. I cut several inches from the sides to bring it in. For the collar, I cut out the original crew neck, sewed the side strips together, and attached it. I left the sleeves crazy long because my hands get so cold.
This is an Eddie Bauer men’s sweater, size XXL. Fiber content: cotton, lambswool, nylon.
