Re-purposing a sweater

This started out as a fuchsia cashmere sweater so small I couldn’t get my arms through the sleeves.

After cutting and sewing strips of purple cashmere into the sleeves and body of the sweater, it has a retro ski-sweater look.

Bad lighting, dirty mirror, but you get the idea of how the sweater looks on.  I was motivated to repurpose these because of a great book I just read.
