How to Make Every Sweater a Long Hem Sweater

I don’t know about you, but I am in love with all of the long hem sweaters I have been seeing everywhere. Basically I want to buy all of Anthropologie. Seeing as that is not currently in the budget I came up with a solution that I am pretty excited about.

What you’ll need:
An old tank top
Another old shirt in a pattern or color you like
A shirt that is the ideal length for your body {for me that is covering my butt/hips} to use as a guide

I lined everything up using my perfect-fit sweater as a guide, then pinned, trimmed and sewed the two pieces together. I would have the hem part come up a few inches higher than your guide to allow it to work with any sweater length.



The possibilities are endless!
