Sweater Better

365 day 307 - De-stretchifying my sweater

Fixed sweater

Thanks, Sarah, for suggesting grosgrain ribbon.  My sweater no longer falls off of my shoulders, and I was even able to move the button closer to the button band, where it belonged.

I machine-sewed the ribbon on.  Maybe not the best idea? It doesn’t sit quite right.  Still, it’s way better than it was.  While this may never be my go-to sweater, at least it’s no longer my run-from sweater!

The Face x 3. Again.

The boys and I (and our filthy bathroom mirror) wish you a goofy, fun-filled weekend ahead!

  1. Yay!! Plus it looks cute in there. I think machine sewing was the way to go – it’s just kind of fiddly. Pin, pin pin and use a walking foot if you have one.

    1. Ah, maybe it would have gone better with a walking foot. I have one, but never have figured out how to put it on my machine 😉
