Jody Pearl gives some tips and tricks for cutting and resewing sweaters to create a beautiful upcycled garment. The stretchy knit of a sweater handles differently under the needle than a woven fabric, but she gives tips for cutting the fabric, combining the types of knits, and for sewing them together so they don’t stretch out. You’ll also get to see photos of one of her upcycled sweaters in process. Go to her post.
