Heres another refashioned sweater that I have loved wearing. I really like a cardigan since it doesn't have to go over your head and mess up your hair or give you more static cling. This is the before:
And here is the after:
You can see the placket a little better here. I cut the sweater down the middle and measured the cut where I thought I wanted the placket to be and then just kind of winged it. I added three button holes and originally wanted to use big leather buttons but made the button holes too small so used the off white buttons. I've really enjoyed this sweater and love that it is a wool sweater, you need that when the wind chill makes it feel like zero degrees!
