Most of them were too small for me, but I filled a cart with clothes for my little sister, and now she has a new Spring wardrobe, which she really needed.
The only things I could find for me were long sleeved shirts and one turtleneck, which I hate. For some reason long sleeved shirts just don't fit me very well. I never wear them, but I couldn't pass up such a good deal, so I bought them and refashioned them into casual cardigans!
By "refashion" I mean I cut a line straight up the middle. I also cut off about an inch of the collar at an angle on this one. I like it a lot, it's really comfortable.
The next one is a slightly different shirt. It was already a v-necked shirt so I didn't have to fix the collar on this one. I just cut a line up the middle and I was able to wear it to work today. This one I like to wear pinned at the top. I am planning on sewing on a ribbon tie or something so I don't have to use a safety pin.
This one was the turtleneck, so it is a little thicker. I don't like this one as much, the color is so bright! I probably will just wear this around the house. You can't really see in this picture, but I have it closed in front with two giant safety pins, maybe three inches long. They are amazingly handy and convenient but they look like a fashion statement. I love my giant safety pins.
Here is a closer picture of the top. Because it was a turtleneck, I just cut straight up through the middle and now it looks like a big collar.
Lastly here is one of the ones I made for my little sister. Some of the shirts I bought her were too low cut, but they make adorable little cardigans! I used another giant safety pin to close it at the top, but I will probably add a ribbon tie later.
Anyway, that's what I've been up to recently. Sorry about the awful pictures, I couldn't find the camera so I had to use my webcam!
Coming up tomorrow... probably a post about Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott.
