    It seems to be so easy! The best sentence of your instructions is:“Take a deep breath”. I’ve got some old sweaters and cardigans, but I’m not able to cut them. Maybe I can after I have seen your beautiful upcycled sweater.

    That is fantastic! I’m going to try it as soon as I’ve finished my dress. Thank you so much, your tutorial is great.

    I love your design! That is so clever! I think the hardest part is cutting into a sweater, but you just have to take a deep breath and say “Recycle!”

    I love it! How did you stop it fraying? x

      That’s the beauty of recycling sweaters — for the most part, they don’t fray much when you cut them. Especially if you pick a sweater knit with a finer yarn. Also I sewed all the seams with a serger to make it really durable.
