Vote for it on Betabrand!
I am so honored by all the positive feedback and support I've received for my sweater! It's been featured on Cosmopolitan, Refinery29, Good Housekeeping, Bored Panda, Dangerous Minds, and more. I've put it up on Betabrand, and if I get enough votes, I'll be able to produce and sell it. Please vote, and thank you for encouraging my aspirations!
This sweater is convertible! You can wear it three ways: cowl neck, off-the-shoulder, and leave me alone. The leave me alone mode is more of a statement than a functional piece of clothing - I can't see anything through my sweater. If you find yourself using the leave me alone mode a lot, you could add eye holes.
- Sweater that fits you (to use for sizing)
- 2 yards of fabric: I have a thick warm knit (regular price $20 but I got it for $12 at my local fabric store)
- Zipper: I used a 22 inch zipper and cut it down to 14 inches. Use a longer zipper if you want your sweater to be able to go more off the shoulder. I got thick YYK brand zipper because I wanted it to be prominent. (~$3)
- Thread ($2)
- Sewing machine
- Zipper foot
- Hand sewing needle
