I was in the process of trying to save the grey cowl sweater by turning it into a better sweater, but I made some minor errors. Oops. When I removed the cowl from the sweater, I didn’t like the new neckline and couldn’t figure out how to save it. Instead of putting a little more effort into the save, I decided to turn the sweater into a sweater skirt.
Years ago when I first started refashioning, I destroyed a good number of my husband’s old sweaters trying to refashion a skirt. Needless to say, I failed over and over and over until I ran out of old sweaters. About a year ago, I successfully refashioned a sweater into a skirt, but then I decided the skirt was terrible.
After throwing the green sweater skirt back into my refashion bin, I no longer had sweater skirt. Anyway, all I needed was black elastic and about 30 minutes to turn a sweater into a skirt. I’m pretty happy with the results, and I can’t wait to wear it! Yay!
What I did:
- removed the cowl neck
- realized I didn’t like the new neckline
- could not figure out a quick fix to the neckline
- decided to turn the sweater into a skirt
- snipped off the body of the sweater from armpit to armpit
- added 3-inch black elastic to the waistband
