Easy Sweater Refashion

Here is another easy sweater refashion! This sweater was very comfortable and my favorite color, but I didn't like the style. I fixed it up very easy and quickly.

Materials needed:

  • Old Sweater
  • 2"x 8" strip of fabric x2
  • 2 buttons

Before picture!

Cut out desired neckline (Scoop, v-neck, ect.) and hem. 
Hem 2 long sides and 1 short side of your strip of fabric. Starting 1 inch from the end, fold corner to the inner edge of the hem on the other side like shown:

Keeping that corner down, fold other corner to the edge so that you make a point on one end of the fabric. Sew down.

Right side and wrong side of the two strips of fabric. Cut a buttonhole near the point of each one.

Fold the cuff of your sweater up twice and insert your strip wrong side up. Position it so you can fold it up and button it right above the cuff. Hand sew in place. Add a button, repeat on other sleeve, and you're done!

Hasta la vista!
