I recently found this great old crochet sweater from Espirit in a local thrift store. I knew it was too small for me but I just had to buy it. Today I’m wearing it as a stylish neckpiece to add pizzazz to a basic blue dress.

Here’s how I did it:

Start with one crochet sweater

Fold the neckline over, from back towards front

Place the crochet sweater across your body, arms towards your back.

Bring the arms to the front and tie them in a knit. Pull it tight enough that you like the final shape of the new neckpiece.

Add a terrific decorative pin for more flair. I chose a butterfly.

Add a great pair of shoes

And there you have it!

    quite an interesting way to wear a sweater. I think it would be a lovely skirt. Just have to figure out how to add it a skirt without damaging the design. The color and the design are awesome.
