A Little Ribbon
What I had…a bleh sweater set that I never wore. The shell was a weird length and the wide band did not help. The neckline was too low and the stitching on the front was open, which meant I needed a shell under my shell!
Isn’t it cute? I’ve been looking at a lot of sewing blogs and tutorials lately and I found it whilst Google-ing for sweater tutorials. I found some brown ribbon with polka dots in just the right color pink, and viola! Now I have a cute new sweater. I didn’t really pay attention to the care instructions for the ribbon, so I probably just turned a washable sweater into hand wash/air dry. Time will tell. By the way, for those of you paying attention, this sweater was not on my project list, but I didn’t really break my self-imposed fabric fast…I just bought ribbon. It’s nothing, really.
Oh, and I took in the side seams of the shell, added a ribbon belt, and made a tunic for S! Aren’t we cute? 😉
UPDATE: The ribbon turns out to be machine washable! Yay!
