I think it is awfully hard to find really interesting sweaters off the rack, especially for someone who is only 5‘ tall. This sweater had been one of my favorites; but, I got bored with the closed neck style. After deciding that I‘d rather have a more open neckline, I decided to give this green sweater a little color punch of brown, turquoise and yellow by adding some patterned fabric and make it into a zip-cardigan style. You might also want to have a look at these instructions: http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/converting-old-jumper-into-new-cardie . There seems to be a problem with the “My project is based on” function that won’t acknowledge this.
You need: 1 plain sweater, a piece of cotton fabric 140 cm x 12 cm, 1 zipper (length of zipper & cotton fabric varies depending on length of sweater. Take the sweater with you when you buy the zipper and fabric. You might want to buy more fabric if it is patterned), thread
Flirty dresses, a cropped cami, and glam trousers for modern flappers.
