I have been looking for a mustard-colored cardigan for months. They do exist, but they exist online for $60 and that's just not my style. After keeping an eye out for a while, I saw this perfect sweater from H&M at my local thrift store. Not only is it mustard colored, it's also got stripes - another of my current favorites. But it's not a cardigan. It's a pullover sweater, which I don't do well.
So it's time to cut it up and get that much closer to my dreams. I saw a tutorial for this a few weeks ago but I can't find it anymore. Turns out, there are tons all over the web.
I cut it up the middle. No need for a ruler; eyeballing it turned out alright.
Got my very old bias tape out, opened it up and pinned/stitched one edge to the right side (of the fabric) of one of the sweater's new openings.
I then turned the bias tape to the inside, folding it again and creating a new edge for the sweater's opening.
There you have it. And, no, I didn't wear stripes with stripes that day - this photo is purely for educational purposes.
