{Refashion} Lengthened Pullover

I have a thing for pullover sweaters. However, finding a feminine pullover in the abyss of bulky, boxy, super cozy pullovers can be difficult.

I stumbled across this lovely at Wet Seal in 2008 and I have been hesitant in letting it go simply because I absolutely love the fit of it. It’s soft and cozy with a nice fitted shape and sweet details. The only flaw… It has shrunken lengthwise over the years.

After seeing a pin on Pinterest showing how to add length to a shirt by adding lace to the bottom, I grabbed up my favorite sweater and one of my favorite thrifted scarves and ran to the sewing machine.

How did I not think of this before?!

Okay, I lied. The length wasn’t the only flaw. If you noticed the leftover piece of scarf at the waist of the sweater, that was added as well because the original string was beyond repair. I’m pretty sure I would have added it anyway, though. It looks much prettier.

Sorry for no photo wearing the sweater. This had to be a super quick refash and post due to my two cranky bears. Plus, I just look terrible.

As always, leave me your questions or comments! Happy Duck Dynasty Season 3 Premiere Day!

    Nice! I thought it looked like one I have in blue but then I thought 2008? No way. Then I thought about when I first wore it – 2008 – it’s true. Where does the time go?
