Yes, I do have a thing for cardigans. I've been on an epic quest searching for the perfect one for years. Today, I'm taking a pre-layered sweater (one of those with the white collar and end sleeve things) and turning it into a simple cardigan.
Personally, I think shirts like this are a choking hazard. They're always very constricting around the neck (I'm not a turtle neck fan). And what are those weird things at the ends of the sleeves?
Besides, since this was a hand-me-down from the MIL, it's a petite medium. I am neither petite nor a medium. So something is going to have to give with this sweater.
So I whip out my seam ripper and get to removing all the white fabric.
It looks worlds better already!
I love it! It's the perfect pop of red for the holidays.
