Greetings lovely STF!Hopefully you're still kicking your feet up and enjoying a little holiday break.If you feel like shaking up time-honored traditions—like the non-stop TV-watching with the fam accompanied by frequent round-trips to the kitchen to indulge in the umpteenth snack of the day—I've got a super easy style DIY for you.(Fear not: There are no feathers,glue-guns or sequins involved.) While not quite as simple as a cup-o-soup's "just add hot water" directions,this fun winter fix'll give you a new sweater dress in seconds—or however long it takes you to thread a needle.
First,full disclosure: I cheated a little bit and actually bought this maroon sweater dress a few months ago,but I think the idea totally swipe-able.And as soon as I have enough energy to haul my bum off the couch and tackle sorting out all the boxes of old clothes at my parents' house,I fully plan on testing this theory out.
Now that that's out of the way,here's the sweater dress I'm loving:
The version on the left looks like just a basic,boxy sweater dress—albeit one with two strange dots on either side.
Well,the "dots are actually snaps—the big snap set is positioned a few inches above the waist—and if you pull 'em and snap 'em together,the schlumpy sweater form suddenly has a shape to it.It's officially my favorite winter outfit because it's comfy,cozy and still semi-sexy.It's just begging to be worn on a hot cocoa-drinking date.To make your own (sweater dress,that is),you can…
__1.Go thru your closet (or your boyfriend's,brother's,etc) and find a boxy light-weight sweater that hits just above your knee __ or find a boxy sweater dress in the sale aisle of your fave store.(The box 'o' dresses above are some of the good sales that can currently be found online.) A shorter sweater is OK too—you'll just pair a skirt with it instead of wearing solo when it's all finished.
