Big 80s bat wing cardigan - to this:
I used my perfect shirt pattern to cut out the pieces. The bottom of the sweater became the body of the jacket, and the rest became the sleeves. I managed to use the existing bands everywhere except at the neck, where I sewed on a piece of knit found among remnants. The same fabric was used to make the bow.
Also, I added a button in between the two existing ones and added a snap at the neckline to keep the jacket closed.
I will happily wear the little jacket as a liseuse - bed jacket, to keep me warm at night. :-)
So, everything used in this project was repurposed and I'm pretty satisfied!
