A few years ago, I got this cashmere sweater at a clothing swap. It had been shrunk and the owner didn’t want to wear it anymore. I always wore it around the house, but I managed to shrink it just a little bit more so it didn’t quite match up with whatever bottoms I was wearing, which isn’t so good for staying warm around the house in winter (my stomach was exposed). Also, it had a few holes at the bottom of the sleeves. Still, I like grey because it goes with everything, and it’s a really nice cashmere fabric, so I decided to give it a new life as a cardigan. I used some lace to make an interesting sleeve (which I can take off later if I get sick of the look) and some vintage shell buttons I’ve had FOREVER that came in a box of mostly random buttons my grandmother gave me about 10 years ago.
You’ll have to excuse my photography skills…taking better photos is something I’m still working on, as is photo editing in Gimp (just so used to Photoshop!)
