Quick and easy restyles are sometimes, okay, usually my favorite kind. I have had this sweater for so blasted long I can't even remember where it's from or why in the world I chose brown. I've never really loved it which leads me to believe I found it on the clearance rack; before I started thrift shopping I would shop clearance racks. I had so many clothes that I didn't really like but hey! I found them at a great price! This particular sweater has way-too-long and really tight sleeves. I can't figure it out because I have some pretty scrawny arms, how would a normal person fit into those sleeves??
My only option was to chop off the sleeves. I was pondering turning it into a vest but for now, it remains a sweater. I ruched the sleeves so it didn't look quite like I just chopped the sleeves off...oh wait, I just did.
I wanted to finish the edge rather than leave it raw but 1. it would have been very awkward and difficult considering it was so narrow and 2. if I had successfully finished them off, the edge would probably be all stretched out. So, I chose to leave it raw since it won't fray anyways.
