Re-styling a bright cable sweater

Today I re-did this bright yellow cable sweater from Ann Taylor Loft (I grabbed it at Goodwill Outlet because I love the color!).  It is a super soft angora blend in cute, classic cables, too, which I like.  It was a three-quarter length, sort of shapeless scoop neck in Large before I got to it with scissors, handsewing, and closure.  Take a look!

I just cut down the center and trimmed off the sleeves, just past the shoulder seam, then neatly handsewed a hem into it.  I used a ying yang textured vintage black button from a collection I found in the bins at Goodwill Outlet for decoration on top of the hook and eye closure at the top.  I also took some darts in the back, as it was really shapeless.  It is bright, cozy, and preppy but funky!


  1. I really like what you did!! You can't even tell that it was once a dated, shapeless sweater.!
    It gives me an idea for an old sweater I have.

  2. I LOVE that idea!!! It turned out perfect!
