Project #8

Drab to Fab

I saw this really beautiful cardigan one day and decided the fabric was too great to leave. But it is a stretch knit, which I avoid working with, so instead of totally restructuring it and turning it into a bag, I went for an easy fix. The original size was XXL (and I am a small).

So I made it a permanent wrap. I tacked the bottom corners to the opposite seam and then sewed the front two panels together at the bottom. It's still baggy, but more fashionably so now. Now I just need to get more into wearing cardigans.
