Color Block Sweater

My closet is out of control.....there are so many things that never get worn. 
Instead of throwing it all out, I'm trying to think of ways to refashion some items into clothes I will actually wear.  I pulled these two sweaters out the other day, they are from Old Navy about 4 years ago.

 They are not too bad.......I like the colors, but I dislike the fit - too short and too wide equals not flattering on my figure. So after about an hour of chopping and sewing..... I came out with this: 

A new color block sweater! Not too bad  for an hour's work......and now instead of 2 ill-fitting / boring sweaters, I have a cute new sweater that is plenty long and a little more interesting!
