“Embellish Knit Month” @ Grosgrain inspired me to transform one of my sweaters into a cardigan. It was in fact an old sweater from Dan’s closet, which he stopped wearing but which I couldn't find the heart to toss because it was still in a good shape. It had an outdated pattern but it was still good to wear.
The makeover gave it a new, fresh and more feminine look.
I measured the middle of the sweater and cut from waist to neckline.
I cut off the ribbing at the bottom.
I cut off half of the sleeves.
I double folded the raw edges of the sleeves and bottom and stitched them.
I stitched the raw edge of the new opening with a zig-zag stitch, folded it and stitched it.
I created the buttonholes and sewed on the buttons.
