Valentines day pre-game week is upon us- and though I may be single as a MF, The spirit of the season is not lost on me. So to kick off my Valentines Day Fashion bonanza- I’m starting with my favorite DIY of the year so far. I love this project because it is super simple, super fast and such a great way to give those funky vintage sweaters and sweatshirts an upgrade. Since I know you all love style- I’ll start with the OOTD and then break down how I cropped the sweater.
I think we can all agree, that was a freaking super cute Valentines outfit… so back to this cropped sweater… here is what it looked like before:
Technical note: I chose to hand stitch because the sewing machine stitch had a tendency to stretch the sweater fabric out- making the bottom buckle up a bit- but if you like that look- you can machine sew it as well. Now- you’re DONE! The entire DIY only takes about 30 minutes- how cool is that!? I’m down here jumping for joy…
I styled all of my Valentines Day inspired clothing last night- so I’m looking forward to sharing the love with y’all (lol- see what I did there 😉 )
Love and Thrift,
