In an effort to keep warm, this is my second sweater skirt sewing refashion. I found the stripey jumper in the sale at a local church affiliated Op Shop for $2.50 (it always makes me smile to find a sale at an Op Shop, considering the original prices are so low anyway).
As with my first sweater skirt refashion sewing project, which also happened to be a turtle neck, I've snipped off each arm and body. The body becomes the skirt, and arms become legwarmers.

I have over-locked (serged) all raw edges, and added a casing band to include elastic to the top of my skirt and leg warmers. For more details on how I did this, you can check out my first sweater skirt and legwarmer sewing project here.
Going back to my initial blog post DIY Upcycled Sweater Skirt being inspired to try my hand at making sweater skirts similar to that seen on the world wide web, I can't help but think that this particular stripey refashion is very similar to the Anthropologie skirt seen in the first image:
