I found this beautiful (very large) cashmere sweater at a local thrift shop. It is a 2 ply cashmere from Sax Fifth Avenue so I knew it was quality goods. I bought it purely for the fabric & thought I may make something out of it someday. Earlier this week I took it out & decided that it just might be salvaged as a real sweater for myself. Out came the scissors & after a snip-snip here & another snip-snip there I turned it inside out, drew some chalk lines to reduce the size then sewed it along the lines. After cutting off the excess fabric & turning it right side out again I found myself with a more fitted & slightly slouchy (which I like) raw edge, cherry red, very wearable sweater. The whole thing took no more than 20 minutes. I thought this was an appropriate color for Valentines week. Are we tired of red yet? No way!
