Refashion: Bulky square sweater into cute modern top

This is another sweater my grandmother gave me. It’s a nice fabric and I had this vision of modernizing it.

I angled the sleeves as well as the bodice, making it wider up top then tapering it down towards the waist.



Next, I cut a much wider neckline and hemmed.


I added three small pleats to the back of the neckline to keep the top from falling off of my shoulders (in other words, I cut the neckline too large).

Here’s the end result…I absolutely love how this top turned out!
