Remember when I showed you this before pic? I mean, really, how could you forget? Am I haunting your dreams with that face? I thought so.

When I subjected you to such horror before, I was posting about my newly skinnified Banana Republic jeans. But what I really wanted to show you was a very shapeless, thrifted sweater in a color we can only call citron. It’s the lemony-est yellow I’ve ever seen, so it gets a special name.

Citron was a men’s medium and much too boxy. So I decided to take the sides and arms in, so the darn thing would actually fit me. Now, I’m not calling this post a tutorial, because I didn’t take any pictures of the process. But I will show you a fun little diagram for laughs.

Starting in the armpit, I sewed the blue dotted line to the bottom of the sweater. Then I sewed from the armpit down the arm to the cuff. Do this to both sides. I cut the excess fabric after sewing.

I have to say that I’m pretty smitten with my new citron sweater.

It’s even better under a blazer. But really, what isn’t? Blazers are the best.

Did you notice my new social widgets below? Those will make it super easy for you to like, share, tweet, email, or pin anything you see on the blog. And sharing is free, and fun!  When you use social media to talk about things you find fun, interesting, or just plain awesome on the interwebs, you make that person/company/topic just a tad more visible in the sea of internet junk. Cool, eh? Learning is rad.
