The summer is almost over! :-( But Fall/Autumn is coming soon - I love sewing Fall/Autumn clothes!! :-) So it's time to look at building my Fall/Winter 2012 wardrobe.
I made this comfy single layer boucle cardi when I was pregnant with my first child (see this post). It had been well used throughout 2 pregnancies. I even received a number of compliments for this jacket while pregnant.
But now it just looks sad and shapeless on me:
Using a well fitting sweater jacket as a pattern, I cut out the excess
material on the side, slimmed and shortened the sleeves and serged it all back together.
And now it fits much better! A quick and easy refashion on a self-stitched garment.
