This is from a blog post I wrote two years ago, but never quite got around to posting. It involved one of my favorite activities -- FRANKENSEWING...
|As Ritaluck would have it -- I found this wonderful NYC subway map sweatshirt at a Clinton, Iowa thrift store. I paid $2 for it. But it didn't fit Lilly...|
|It was too tight in the body -- and too long in the sleeve. NO PROBLEM -- remember -- my Grandma Superpower is I CAN SEW...So, the first thing I did was open the side of the jacket...and add about 3" of black fabric on each side.|
|Then, I cut out 1 inch from each sleeve -- and reattached the ribbed wrist piece...|
|Honestly, I cannot imagine a better Grandma moment...|
