second-breakfast asked: Thank you so, so much for posting that tutorial on altering sweaters! I had a cool (but much too large) cardigan that had been sitting in my closet for ages, waiting for me to take it in. I thought taking in sweaters would be super complicated, but your tutorial gave me the courage to try it. It was so quick and simple, so even though I'm a complete sewing novice, I didn't mess up once!...

second-breakfast asked: Thanks for the instructions on how to take in a sweater! My local thrift shop has some really pretty ones that I've been eyeing, but they're all far too large for me. If this works, they can be mine! I was worried that they might unravel when you cut them, though. Does the stitching really prevent that? (Also, do you have any tips for bringing up the arms? They're like batwings!)
carolinaanne asked: I need your help! I bought a men's large Christmas sweater from goodwill (tis the season, eh?) and it's big enough to be a dress on me. I need to take the arms in significantly, which I think I can figure out, but also it is way too wide. The problem with taking it in around the original side seams is that I will be sewing through some of the decoration on the front (think bright gold...
