It's confession time. I've been shopping at JCPenney.
Occasionally I'll find myself parking in the JCPenney lot (because let's face it, it's always the least crowded entrance to the mall), so a few weeks ago I was walking through on my way to another store when a grey cashmere sweater caught my eye. It was in an enormous size and had one of those dumb scoopy neck lines, but the heathered cashmere was so pretty and it was a STEAL at $20.
I have a deep-rooted aversion to loose, scoopy necklines (it's so hard to find a true crew-neck these days!), so I wanted to find a way to make the neckline a little less floppy. I got out a needle and thread, created a little pleat, and 5 minutes later... voila!
I think this looks like a fancy detail on an expensive sweater, not a 5 minute update to a $20 sweater. This guy is going in my weekly rotation!
