time for a winter wardrobe?!

I know its too beautiful outside to think about this today –17degrees in November… woah!! but my office is still chilly. And because im sure the freezing cold chill will sneak up on us all in no time. Actually, I have been in need of some sweaters for some time, but since i like them long in the arms and body and  slim fitting too i have struggled through many many failed thrift shopping trips. So i decided to make some myself. i mean, why not. (and its been a while since i offered a tutorial too) Once again this isn’t from my own head, although i am planning on reusing an old oversized sweatshirt as the fabric….

If you join the BurdaStyle website you will have access to free patterns you can print right from your home computer. You are required to then peice together the pages, but i think they are numbered or lettered (its been a while since i used their site)

Here are some of my favorites.
