I have an old school jumper/sweater and it's pretty cute now I'm not being forced to wear it, but I want to update it. It's loose and woolen and baggy with a pale grey stripe around the v neckline and hem and cuffs.
Right now I'm thinking about stitching letters saying 'school jumpers are punk rock' across the back but I want to hear your ideas!

You can turn it in to a cardigan, add ruffles on the bottom hem, sew some sequin trim or stencil it with cool symbols.

I hadn't thought of ruffles and sequins, that's cool, thank you!

Badges sounds rad, but I'm liking the idea of ribbon too, thank you!
