Recon those sweaters

Threadbanger got me all excited about my old sweaters. Instead of sending them over to the second-hand shop, I decided I would recon them. Here is my first. I took off the sleeves to make arm warmers, and made a skirt/belt thingy with the rest if it.

I wore it to church with a purple shirt, which looked AMAZING! The yellow thing is just what I happened to have on for the picture. So, don't let it throw you off.

You could do a million things with that bottom thing. I'm sure this one will end up with my daughter, or - hmmmmmm - another giveaway? The major horizontal stripes across the butt and abdomen of a waistless-35-year-old ... not terribly flattering.

I LOVE Threadbangers, and I did this with some of my kids old sweaters--and made my middle child some really cute sweater dresses out of some old adult sweaters from the thrift shop. Very cool. Love the stripes.

Waistless?... whatever! LOOK at your THIGHS!!! And you've given birth to two children. I am seething with jealousy!!! ;)
