So into Sewing right now!

Maybe it's the weather, getting a little chilly here, but I am really excited to be altering, embelishing and remaking my wardrobe.

 I love this purple sweater, but it is a little too short and leaves my back cold.  It needs a soft, sheer, ruffly skirt thingy (technical terms, ya' know) to fancy it up a bit.  I might also embellish the neckline and cuffs, but first I'll finish the bottom and see where that leads me.

I have had this lightweight sweater for ages.  The scarf will be fluttery sleeves (I think this scarf was my Gram's).  A "new" vintage button and some delicate beading around the neckline will make this plain sweater a little more fabulous.

I recently joined an altered artwear group on yahoo.  Check them out!  If you love the magazines Altered Couture or Belle Armoire, you will want to join this group.

Happy Sewing!

  1. Is there an 'after' photo of the purple sweater yet? I have many too-short tops (the drawback of being long-waisted), and could use ideas beyond giving it all to my short-waisted sister.
