Open Back Sweater DIY | In Honor of Design

I had a few boxy sweaters in my closet that were brand new but weren’t quite flattering. I didn’t want to get rid of them so when I saw this sweater it gave me the idea to re-vamp them into a new style. I now will use these all the time in the cooler months ahead! This is a fun way to up-cycle those sweaters that have been sitting in your closet unused!

I promise this is the easiest DIY you can attempt, and just about anyone can do it. All you really need to know how to do is cut a straight line;)

Step 1: Cut a straight line down the back middle of your sweater.

Step 2: Using sticky back velcro attach three inch strips and attach at the ends of each half. It sticks really well to the sweater and have opened and closed several times with no budge. However, to secure longer you can sew on buttons or sew on the velcro!

Step 3: Line the edges of the cut sweater with Fray Check
to prevent fraying. Put on by sliding arms in and attaching velcro in the back.

Its that easy!

P.S. Its FRIDAYYY which means its time to head over to the Deer Park® facebook page and let them know how you are celebrating the end of the week! If you are a blogger, leave the link on their page to get the conversation going:) I’ll be celebrating over a stack of new mags and a virgin margarita;)
