While the biggest reason I sew is to be creative and come up with one of a kind, well fitting clothes, it also can from time to time save me money. This upcycled sweater skirt is a perfect example. It is sewn from an old sweater and can be completed in about an hour.
I used one of my husband’s old fitted wool/poly blend sweaters for this project. It had lost some of its shape and there was a small hole under the arm. Instead of tossing it out, I created a comfortable and trendy skirt for my daughter for fall.
It works perfectly styled up with some thick cable tights and boots, and my daughter loves the front kangaroo style pocket.
