Main St. Cafe Sweater

There are some good friends of mine (and Hubs) with whom I go to church. Last November, they began an exciting new endeavor: They opened a cafe! Being the coffee addict that I am, I frequent said establishment as often as I possibly can πŸ™‚

In honor of Fall, I decided it only befitting to wear a sweater to this particular visit to Main St. Cafe.

This .99 cent Goodwill find was brand new!

Tag in tact.Β  SO exciting when this happens!

I’m not a sweater dress kind of gal. I don’t have the legs for it, let’s just be honest. It wouldn’t take much to transform this into something flattering.

Image
I have plans for you, scrap.

Then I finished the raw edge with a zig zag stitch. Because the material is stretchy, the edges end up curling. In my sewing classes, I call it the “lettuce leaf.”

Image

C’est fini. For you sew-a-phobes, you could just leave the edge raw and you would have an awesome no-sew refashion for your repertoire πŸ™‚

Image
I really need to invest in a new camera… and stop slouching :-/

Now, I have a lightweight sweater that’s perfect for the seasonal limbo Indiana currently finds herself… and I get to sip coffee at Main St. Cafe in refashionable style πŸ™‚

Image

The “Caramel Nut Iced Mocha” is delish πŸ˜‰

Ga’head, check out the website and if you’re in the K-town area stop in! πŸ™‚

Image

See me in the window? See hubs playing on his phone? See the beautiful backdrop of Downtown Kokomo?

Hopefully, this uber simple refash will prove that you don’t need to spend full price on brand new sweaters or even sew at all to get a fall-ish new look! The simpler the better!
