I don’t know if it’s just the closeness, or what, but whatever it is, it is not okay. I wore this sweater once, and after that long, long day of claustrophobia, I left it hanging in my closet. You may be wondering why I didn’t just throw it away, because that would make more sense than it taking up closet space right? Well, for one it has the most comfortable fabric ever, and for another, I loved the color. So it has sat. And sat. And sat.
I LOVE boat neck sweaters. The loose slouchy feeling is just the best thing ever. So, when in doubt, go find scissors.
In the end, I decided to not only cut off the collar, but about 6 inches off the sleeves as well. Now it not only has perfect fabric, but it also isn’t drowning me.
Thanks for reading,

P.P.S you may be wondering why these pictures are from fall…This post has been sitting in my draft inventory since I wrote it…I don’t know why I never published it, but the fact of things are that I still love that sweater.
