Upcycle a men's sweater into a fall knit skirt (this is actually a knitting pattern for the skirt, I'm all about taking the lazy way to get it done!) Lady who made this and modeled it was real life sized and it looked good on her!
from previous pinner - Swing Thing; shows simple embroidery makes such a difference. Simple looking sweater, too. Click through for free pattern. Ravelry site shows how the right yarn makes a huge difference. reminds me of a coat or when I was little.
