Outfits I Would Like to Illegally Download

Fall is technically here as far as the days go but around my neck of the woods the weather hasn't agreed quite yet that it is indeed fall. After my trip to the  mountains
my body hates the heat and just wants sweater weather badly. Our second trip to Yellowstone didn't help much either! (will blog about when I get enough time) 
Oh well I'll get over it because november will roll around and i'll be missing the warmth of summer :)
Until then i'll just daydream about fall style...

$1.50 Sweater Up-cycle

I saw this during what I thought was going to be a fruitless trip to the Thrift store, I had already been looking through the junk for about 15 minutes and was ready to leave when I saw this. It was in the maternity section but is actually just a 2X Women's sweater. It is in amazing shape, had the tags still on it and was such a pretty shade of soft pink. I knew right away just what to do with it. So I bought it and brought it home to sew into an asymmetrical slouchy sweater, 
which took a total of 2 seams and around 15 minutes for me to do which means its a ten minute project!
Hoooooray for easiness!

 Doesn't it look so soft!

1) Basically You flip the sweater inside out 
2) Then you pin the sides about where you see I laid my ruler 
in the photo above all the way down the sweater. Towards the bottom 
you're going to taper/angle in just like above shows (but all the way down, the sweater just hangs over the edge of my table so you cant quite see what imm saying).

Heres a closer view of what I mean. 

3) Now sew where your pins are
4) Remove pins 
5) Cut excess material off
6) Flip right side out
7) Put on
8) Flaunt it :D

I know I should really finish painting my trim
