I don't think any project is more satisfying than a refitted top. It's so simple, and yet looks like an entirely different article of clothing.
I got this too-big sweater at St. Vinnie's for something like $2. I originally thought I would make another sweater dress, but it just wasn't long enough, and the excess fabric wouldn't have looked right added to the bottom. So it's a little bit of an odd length. I did, however, follow my sweater dress tutorial for the refitting process. Not bad, and just goes to show that just because something doesn't fit quite right doesn't mean that it needs to be passed up on the racks.
