thrifty: the embellished sweater {II}

i snagged yet another sweater at the Veteran's Day sale @ Value Village. and i was stumped about what to do with it. the cut is plain & the color brown is a bit faded & really needed something to make it look "on purpose".

i dug through my mom's "scrap" drawers & came upon this old lace & ribbon. with a little fancy stitching & a sewing machine, i've got a new sweater :)

i'm considering dying it a darker color...but that just might be too much work (& time) for the $4 i spent on it.

I love it. And the bow is just the right touch. I wouldn't die it because then you'd have to get it messy.
