You can find the original swants tutorial here .
I´m showing you a easy way to make your own low crotch swants.
It takes about 35 minutes to make them
and you only need to cut and sew.
Materials and tools:
- A sweater that fits you ( V neck if possible)
- A needle
- Waste yarn for seaming
Step 1: Shape and Size
The importance of the " V "neck is because we will be using
it as an intern belt.
Step 2: Cut
the back and the front.
Step 3: Sew
Make sure the shoulders are pointing to the middle of the sweater.
Do the same to the back.
There is going to be a space between both shoulders (red line).
Don't worry, that is supposed to happen.
Sew the front with the back to close that hole.
Step 4: Almost Done
You can leave your work done here, but as in my case, if you think your swant
is going to fall to your knees when you walk...
Then you should try the next step.
Step 5: From Neck to Belt
Sew as shown in the image (by the inside).
Then pass a lace or a ribbon trough the hole in the belt.
Step 6: You Are Done.
