I’ve delayed this post as long as possible trying to figure out how to remedy this fail. But no such luck, so here’s my refashion fail no. 3.
It all started with these two tops.
If you look closely, you will see a seam running along the back of the long-sleeve blue top. I cut along that back seam to make what was to be my cardigan.
Then chopped the top portion off the tank top:
Figured out what that’s going to be yet?
Pockets! In my opinion, all cardis should have pockets.
I pinned the pockets to my cardi and stitched them down.
I was oh so pumped about this refashion, until I tried it on…
I guess that’s what happens when you try to make a cardigan from a backward cotton t-shirt. I thought about cutting off the sleeves to make a vest, but I’m almost certain that’s not going to fix the problem. So I’m asking you friends out there for ideas. How would you fix this? It doesn’t necessarily have to stay a cardi, but I do want to keep the pockets.
To thank you in advance for your participation, here’s a cute baby mustache:
Yep, that happened all its own. I couldn’t have made it if I tried.
The joys of parenthood. :)
