Old Sweater into Short Sleeve Dress (peasant style) During the summer, the sun was coming up around 5:30 am…….now it waits until 7 am or so. And I used to have some great evening sunlight to work with until about 8-ish……..now I have to hurry and use up the last drizzle of light before 6-ish. And that means, yep, seasons are changing, days are shortening, and the weather is cooling down. And our wardrobes are warming up. I was looking through my pile of sweaters the other day and realized an old sweater I had, was just too short on my long torso. So it was time to chop her up.

braided chain stitch Also known as: Hungarian braided chain stitch The braided chain stitch is worked almost the same way as the heavy chain stitch. There is only a slight difference in the way the needle is taken under the existing loops, thus giving it a totally different and embossed look. braided chain stitch
