Upcycled Cotton Sweater In Gray And Red, Extra Large

Upcycled cotton sweater in gray and red, extra large

This sweater started life as a rather plain, but good quality, cotton cardigan. It has reincarnated into something daring, but not all-out crazy. I have taken this demure sweater and given it extra character by altering the sleeves into a puffy princess style with lace, adding a lovely crocheted applique to the back, and using zippers to shape the front. The zippers are functional and help the sweater to fit to your curves, instead of its original, boxy shape. Matching red buttons complete the sweater. All of the materials used to make it were upcycled.
