Man's sweater refashioned into Girl's turtleneck

So, i know this is kind of late... but in the winter i get super cold and it seems like my husband is always warm. I was going through his clothes one day i realize that his shirts are so thick and warm- no wonder he can stay so warm! Thats when I decided to steal one of his shirts and make it into my own.
I put on his shirt and pinned the the shirt to fit my body. Then I sew along those lines and used that extra material to create a turtleneck and fabric flowers that lined the shoulder.

Once I created my masterpiece it was then time to show the hubbs, he loved it of course, that is until he found out it was his shirt...haha woops.

*Lesson learned* when you spring clean this year and your going through your husband's winter clothes to throw out- making sure its the ones he's throwing out maybe think twice before tossing it and what it could create for your own cute winter shirt.



Ps. If you have a post this Wednesday- you should link up here... you can post anything you want to, its all about the love!

Now the real trick, can you turn a girl's sweater into a boy's?
