I found a fisherman knit sweater at the thrift store. I cut off the sleeves and reshaped the neckline and waist. The tops of the new sleeves are orange velveteen left over from some Ikea curtains I needed to hem. The bells are cut from a 1930’s table runner. A hodgepodge of large shell buttons replaced the original smaller ones. Antique embroidered silk ribbon around the neck and sleeve bells finish it off.
