new (to me) sweater:

3 posts in one day??!!

It's true. I went to valvil again on a hunt for some sweaters to alter for me and mine.
I saw this sweater vest double my real size and knew it had potential.

I decided to make a info-mercial type before and after:
Likey? Waaay easy.
I just put it on inside out, safety pinned where I wanted it to fit and then sewed it. 
BLAM. New favorite shrity-sweater-vesty thing. All it took was 20 min, no jokesters.

Next up? Dresses for the girls!

...and its also true, I have a hard time just plain smiling in a picture.

Oh my gosh I love your freaking face(s)!
That looks hot.
Unfortunatley I was distracted by something shiny when they were giving out creativity, resourcefullness & thrifty-nifty up in the pre-existence.
You gots mad skills, yo.

You are so skinny!! That sweater looks amazing!

Did you add sleeves to it? Or did it always have sleeves but I couldn't see it in the "before"? Either way, LOVE it... I may hit our local SAVERS (a sister-company to ValVil) and see what I can find.
Although I don't know if I can come up with a creative nickname for my thrift store :)

That is sooo cute! I am not gonna lie when I saw the before picture I didn't believe it was going to be cute, but I LOVE it!! I wish I knew how to sew, I would totally make 10 for myself and Cheyenne too:)

The sweater turned out great! It's hard to believe the before and after are really the same piece of clothing!
