I woke up this morning with the intention of finishing the sweater dress I was making. While I did work on it for a while, but it wasn’t as easy I was expecting it to be.This was frustrating cause I wanted it done today. (I sound like a toddler there) So I decide to drop this project for a while and started something new. The new project is a super soft red fuzzy sweater dress.
I had a couple of problems with this dress; it was an awkward length, and the neckline was too low.I decide to fix the neckline first. I toyed with the idea of taking it in at the shoulders. (By toyed I mean I sewed it then ripped it all out again.) It just made the shirt hang funny. Since I was having a great day for problem solving, I decided to ignore it and work on the length.
I could see it as a shirt, so I sewed the bottom ribbing up higher. It seems like there should be a better way to describe but I can’t think of it, so here a picture. I do apologise for the bad explanation.
This efficiently shortens the dress to a shirt. Now that I fixed the length all I had to do was the neckline. While trying on the shirt after shortening it, I accidentally put it on backwards. Voila, the neckline is fixed. I like how the old back new front neckline is so straight across. It is quite open in the back and maybe I will add a bow or something later, after wearing it for awhile.
Do to my bad problem solving this morning I got a fuzzy sweater. Did I mention it incredibly cozy I could wear it all winter long and I probably will. Have anybody else made something to avoid another project?
