Goodwill and BurdaStyle: Boutique You

Well hello there, Autumn! It’s sweater weather again – and of course, our stores are full of warm n’ cozy pullovers. But let’s say you’re all set on the traditional argyle front – what else can you do with these comfy finds? We know just the thing… This week’s GoodwillNyNj and BurdaStyle’s Boutique You project: custom-made, one-of-a-kind, reusability-loving Leg Warmers!

Sashay those summer skirts right into Autumn with Boutique You's leg warmers.

Want to make ’em yourself? Browse Goodwill for sweaters with ribbed knit fabric, and make sure you choose a pullover with enough fabric to work with. Also keep an eye out for any cool embellishments while you’re browsing the racks – buttons are an especially playful touch. Find your favorites, and then head home to your sewing machine and this BurdaStyle pattern. A little handiwork, a little flair, and, WHAM, you’ll have the most eye-catching gams in the county this Fall. How’s that for season’s greetings?

If you’d like to participate show ’em off, we’d love it. Post your photos and comments about this bag and the Boutique You series on our Facebook Fan Page or tweet us your thoughts on Twitter. Can’t wait to see your creations!
