Well thank you, everyone, for the thoughtful sweater thoughts (they were very thoughtful...did I use that word enough?) So, here's the sweater in question..I got it for something like $4.00, new, from Tulle's on Tulle's Day.
Tulle's Day, blessed event that it is, has now been discontinued. But before it's discontinuation, it was on the first Tuesday of every month. Some months were better than others. But, I got practically a whole new wardrobe from Tulle's, for a SONG. This sweater was one of those items. It's just perfect...it is modern, but with that classic, Tulle's vintage twist....the knit is nice, not scratchy, it fits great. But, I found some of the Tulle's Day items can be a little sketchy in the quality department. It seems like it is always All or Nothing with them. This is the 2nd Tulle's item I've had fraying with, in the boob area (And like I said, I do NOT qualify as well-endowed! Not by a mile...or a cup size).
Anyway, I thought I would show you the sweater. It looks better on...but seeing as I refuse to wear makeup on Sundays, I'm gonna skip self-portraits.
Here's a closeup of the dreaded hole...it looks worse in person, or when the sweater knit is stretched.
And here's me pointing to it's placement.
It's not a super big deal....but I really can't wear it until I fix it, because that hole will only get bigger! BUT! I have a game plan...I'm gonna do one of the following things:
a) Bring it home and beg my Mom to help me. Very grown up, I know!
b) Try to bring the loops of the yarns together with some thread and tie it off. I could hide the threads up under the seam.
Although, the bedazzler option that someone mentioned is sounding more and more simple, and classy.
I hate to make SUCH a big deal out of a sweater...but when you aren't buying clothes for a year, suddenly a sweater seems much more important than it did! And, of course, I am mentioning it here because it is topical. So, it's time to spill your guts...have any of you lost a beloved sweater or any other piece of clothing? I'd love to hear about it in the comment section below:) Have a great week! I'll try to do some alterations out of my alteration basket! Maybe I'll even transform an item or two!
