It’s Day 4 of the 30 day of repurposing project!
This is going to be a fun one.
Step 5: Make sure the curve of the sleeve will fit in the curve of the armholes on the body part of the pattern.
Step 6: Cut out the sleeves on the fold of the sweater sleeve. Use the cuff of the original sweater for the cuff of the new sleeves.
Step 7: This is what the sleeves will look like when they are unfolded.
Step 8: This is what the body pieces will look like when unfolded.
Step 9: Sew shoulder seams, right sides together.
Step 10: Unfold and pin sleeves at the armholes, right sides together. Sew or serge.
Step 11: Fold down and sew along sides and sleeves.
Step 12: Cut off collar of original sweater. Pin it, right sides together to the new sweater, making it smaller and sew on. (not pictured, sorry!)
Step 13: Cut 3 strips, one being longer.
Step 14: Gather your strips, then pin them on and sew down the center. (this is before I ripped out my gather stitch)
Step 15: Rip out your gather stitch and you are done!!
Jump up and down because you just repurposed a sweater!
I made sure to make the sweater on the large side so she can wear it longer.
And tomorrow I’ll be showing you how I made the coordinating headband!
