Pretty bow

From Left: Philip Lim Spring 2010 RTW from Style.com, Nightingale black dress from itsokmydear, & Sunshine's red dress from Nadinoo.

Influenced by above lovely sweater/dresses, here is my attempt to incorporate bows in my closet...
I did not make sweaters themselves. They were ugly old turtle neck sweaters I found second hand. I cut off the turtle neck, and used that fabric to create bows. I made boat neck cut for gray sweater and back V line for purple sweater and finished them with black bias strips.
I like these much better than turtle neck sweaters, I do not like turtle neck very much... it makes my neck itchy and face look so big and moon-like!

I love your bows! I have been planning a big bow project for a couple weeks but the best bow tutorial I have found is on threadbanger. Do you know of a good one??

hi transient beauty,

i dont know any tutorials - i usually use two layers for the main part, and then crunch the middle with a band of fabric to make a bow!

thanks for the explanation of how to deal with the raw neck edge. I thought I would need a serger to remodel a sweater. I tried using bias tape today and it worked wonderfully!
