This is the second altered cashmere sweater. It came from the local thift store. I forgot to take the ‘before’ picture so I found a similar one on google images.
Basically, I shortened the length, made it into a cardigan, widened the neckline, lengthened the sleeves. The front ties are made out of pale blue cotton. The nice part about this sweater is that you don’t have to untie the ties every time, you can just put it on over your head.
I blogged about it here: http://oldrags.wordpress.com/2010/12/05/sweater-project-2/
