DIY: Sweater Jacket

Ah! There's nothing like traveling to remind me how much I love this city. Today was a sunny delightful day, it's like a hug.

Well enough about that. I finally have a really cool amazing DIY. I saw this picture:

And I thought to myself: "I can make this!" But with a guttersnipe twist of course.

What you need:
a sweater
a jean jacket
needle & thread (or if you have a sewing machine)

First. turn the jean jacket inside out and cut along the seam to cut off the sleeves

Second. turn the sweater inside out and cut a large part of the sleeve off so you have something to sew off of.

third. line the sweater shoulder line with the jean jacket shoulder line and sew.

fourth. line the arm pit line of the sweater to the jean jacket arm pit line and sew.

fifth. sew the rest of the sweater to the jean jacket.

sixth. Enjoy!

I am so glad I finally got to do a DIY, one that is super cool and haven't seen before. I found something similar on someone's etsy account and they charged $65!
