I suspect by now you all know my obsession with knits and with Rockabilly fashion, to this shouldn't be a huge surprise.
Thie sweater started out as a huge slouchy Gem Sweater. You can guess how frightening that was.
So I started by removing all the beads and thread and giving it a really good wash.
Because I'm not a slouch sweater kind of girl I used a fitted sweater as a template for cutting this sweater down to size so it fits me pretty neatly now.
And because I really wanted a Swallow sweater. I broke out my embroidery floss and free-handed two swallows on my sweater.
Before you choke I used a referance image.
