Shawl sweater = shawlie?


I need one of these shawlies, but they're either made by Dior Homme (and $600) or sold by street vendors in Korea (like $5, but pretty much inaccessible for me).

So what I really need is someone that knows how to sew, and sew creatively.

You have a mom and a grandma who both sew.

Seriously, J.Bro, you'd wear that?!??!

Unfortunately, my skills kinda run out at scarves. (Rectangles of cloth sewn together end to end.)

OleNelson said...

Just... no. J-Bro. The line must be drawn somewhere. And I, for one, think it should be drawn at "shawlies."

I bet that Melanie, among others, would agree.

I think it's a less-complicated thing than OleNelson and Spice think - it's really just a hooded sweatshirt with the front ends of the hoods overlapped a few extra inches. Nothing offensive about that, right?

Spice said...

It leaves me "unsatisfied." And not in the good, J.Bro sense of the word.

Even though it is super ugly, I can see you wearing something like that. What has happened to you big brother?

Please, listen to your friends. Shawlie = bad.

I keep coming back to it and trying to figure out how to make it, but I'm afraid I'm just not smart enough. I would start with two thrift store sweaters made of identical fabric (first flaw in this plan: finding two identical sweaters, one of which fits you) and cutting the non-fitting one into the shawlie shape and sewing it on. Second flaw in the plan: I'm lazy. Third flaw: what fabric is it supposed to be made of, anyway?

Shawlie is not my favorite of the clothing you have posted. I can see that it would have some utility in the frigid weather that you are now experiencing, but on a whole, BAD BAD BAD!
