DIY open back fall sweater

DIY Fall Sweater

There are some classic items for each season. So needed that sometimes it can be boring. Let’s face it: we get excited when it’s time to start using sweaters but after some weeks we can’t stand them anymore. Especially if you have a lot of basic ones.

That’s why this DIY is so useful, besides fun. You can get an old and boring sweater and transform it into a new interesting piece. The best part? It’s a really easy DIY! You don’t even need a sewing machine for that.

I got a sweater I had for years (by the way, I have 3 different colors of the same sweater, lol) and opened its back to make it a bit more loose. I have attached some ribbons but you can do it with strips, fabrics, and other things.

So if you want a fun DIY for a cloudy day to appreciate an old sweater again, just follow these steps.

Cut as deep as you want. (I put on the sweater, looked at the mirror and marked it with a pin where I wanted to end the cut)

I placed the ribbons where I wanted them. I folded the ends together for a clean finish.
