(needs updating with more pics etc)
after purging my wardrobe i came across two sweaters that...i didnt really like anymore. i think they are very comfy and i like them in the winter when around the house but i didnt like the designs. i really like the trend of colour block clothes so i wanted to try my hand at something like that.
the first sweater needed to be dyed as it was a pastel pink. it came out more a grey/muted navy but i dont mind.
i sketched out various designs for where the colour block should be to help try and balance it, as there would be more of one colour due to the bottom elastic bit...(idk names). i settled on having the collar and wrist cuffs be grey to balance out all the red.
i realised before cutting/unpicking both sweaters that one was bigger than the other just slightly, so i made sure that all the pieces i cute were the same size. it was then just a case of sewing everything together. the collar is a little off with some of the old pink polyester thread that didnt dye poking through and the measurements being wrong here, but it is easily hidden with a nice collar which is my favourite kind of outfit!
i love this sweater as i can now wear it on a lazy day or in bed but also with so many outfits too.
the remaning fabric will be repurposed - stay tuned!
