gettin' crafty: sweater refashion

i bought this sweater off a clearance rack for $3.
it was way too big, but i really liked the green and the hood.
i put it on and used safety pins to fit it on the sides and
shoulders. (if you turn the sweater inside out first you don't
have to move the pins to the other side before you sew.
of course i didn't think about that before i started...)

i did a straight stitch then followed it up with a zigzag stitch
to help keep it from raveling. trimmed the seams and done.

this will be swell over summer tops.
a great way to extend the wardrobe for next to nothin'!
