Repurposed Sweater

 Just a simple V-neck Sweater I have had for a while and wanted to Pretty it up a bit.
 I added pearls and beads.
 The Finished Sweater.. Wish I would have taken a before picture of the sweater. It was just a plain old V neck Sweater.
I get bored of things easily. I say.. "When you can't go shopping".. Never Fear!  Do with
what you have"!.. So, I did just that.. I took a plain old V-Neck sweater (that I probably got
at a yard sale or thrift shop)   and I had some white material that was edged in Seam binding.
I believe it was the cut-off bottom of a hem or something.. I thought I could re-Use this!
I sewed the strips down the middle and gathered it first... Then I sewed it to the sweater.. It
was a Ruffled look at first.. I kind of liked that too !  Then, I decided to top it Off with someFlowers! I gathered the strips first then shaped into a flower.. I made 5 Rosette
Flowers on each side of the V-neck.. I added Pearl centers and some beads too..
This Sweater went from Plain to Fabulous!!   It is so Possible to Re-Use and be Happy!  Have a Lovely Weekend!
