This one’s simple. View after photos here.

You will need:
– A sweater (the one I used was a bit out of shape. The smaller the skirt the tighter the fit)
– Needle & Thread
– Scissors
– Button, snaps, etc. (You will need a closure for the sides.)

The top of the sweater will be the waist. Measure your waist so you know how wide to open the collar. I wanted mine a bit high-waisted, so I didn’t have to cut as much.

Cut or open shoulder seams. I would have used a seam ripper but it is lying on the porch of the apt. below mine. That’s what I get for doing my work outside.

Now for the pockets. Flip sweater inside out.

Cut the shape of the pockets and stitch closed.

This is what you should have after you tuck the pockets inside the sweater.

Lastly, put the sweater on and mark where the closure(s) (i.e. buttons, snaps, etc.) should go. That way, you can slip the sweater on & off with ease.

Optional: I also took the scraps from my sleeves and made a draw-string. I threaded it through the collar to the back of the skirt like so:

Easy enough, yes?
