While I was back home at Christmastime, I found an old sweater of mine. (Remember back in Junior High when dusters sweaters were totally “in”). Well, its still a great sweater, but the sleeves were all stretched out- drove me crazy!
Then I trimmed off the excess. And zigzagged the seam to reinforce and contain the raw edge(don’t need no stinkin serger…well someday I do want one, but for now my machine has some stitches that mock serge).
I also added a big black button. I had a horrible time sewing a buttonhole, but it does the job okay. I can wear it with or without the tie now.
(awful picture of myself) Well, a simple fix up. But something I never used to be able to do.
