DIY Twisted Sweater Refashion: Reversible

[VIDEO] DIY TWIST SWEATER REFASHION

Fall is here when I was just getting warmed up! Feels like it was just yesterday I was talking about sweater weather. Well, at least it’s not yet time for heavy layers.

Here I have a sweater refashion with a twist. It makes a perfect transitional piece. As a matter of fact, it’s been on my to-try-list ever since I saw it last year. When I noticed it was back this season, I took that as my queue.

 

You’ll Need:

• Pins

Ruler

Scissors

• Hand Needle

• Marking Tool

Measuring Tape

• Matching Thread

• Oversized Sweater (collarless, basic flat knit and lightweight)

* In case you’re wondering, I used a men’s sweater in a size medium, which I got from a Saver’s thrift store.

OF COURSE I HAD TO TRY IT IN REVERSE!

 

If you’re one of the lucky ones still experiencing warm weather, surely this tutorial can be done using lightweight knits as well.

I must admit that sewing knits without the proper tools is a nightmare! Even when you’re trying to be super careful, warping is unavoidable.

So how did I get my seams so neat?? Two word, steam pressing! I think in some way the steam sorta shrinks the knit so it bounces back into shape. Just my guess!

It may not work for everyone but it’s worth a shot! Remember to always test first.

 

Thoughts?

    Wow, you are so talented! This looks amazing! I’ve been looking for this diy twisted style for a while. Thank you so much for uploading this! 🙂

    1. Thanks Knom! It’s my pleasure. Yeah, I know what you mean. I think layering it over a tank top would remedy it. I imagine pairing it with a contrasting color to make the twist really stand out. 😀 Just a thought!
