i came by this cute sweater for free at a church clothing exchange, i loved the color and the cute sleeves, but just wasnt too sure about the turtle neck
when i tried it on later i realized the turtle neck HAD to go, this sweater had too much going on with the turtle neck, puffed sleeves and ribbing on the lower half. i set about researching on the internet the best way to remove a turtle neck without too much damage. it seems the best way is to clip a little hole near the seam and separate the two layers of turtle neck, then carefully snip them away without damaging the finished edge between the layers, i can do that!!
i also saw that one lady had used the turtleneck to make a rosette. i can do that too!
ta da! the sweater, which is currently in the wash because i put it on on sunday morning, and then proceeded to spit toothpaste on myself, charming, i know.
but it does look super cute on, and Ken didnt even recognize it as the same sweater.
