I love a good party so I was all on board when Petite Stitchery said they were hosting an Ugly Sweater Party. Who doesn’t love a fun ugly sweater?!!
I’ve loved the Rosemary Cowl Crop since the very first preview I saw and knew it would be perfect for this tour.
I think an ugly sweater is all about upcycling so for my version I grabbed a cozy blanket from good ol’ Wal-mart. It worked perfect and I loved being able to use the blanket edge for the bottom hem too!
I did a little tricky hacking to make the sweater just one layer. This fleece is so thick and cozy that I didn’t want to add too much bulk. I used a scuba knit stripe for the cowl and cuffs. I sewed the cowl on like a neckband. The sleeve cuffs kinda stumped me. They are sewn like a lining about 7 inches up the sleeve and rolled up for a nice, thick contrast cuff.
She’s ready to party!
What? There’s more fun sweaters coming your way! Make sure to head over to the other stops on the tour:
