Turtleneck sweater to asymmetric cardigan with cool details

A former favourite sweater, that lay forgotten and unloved in the back of the closet...

 ...has come back to glory.
I cut of the turtleneck and cut the sweater open to make an asymmetric cardigan. I (hand)sewed the button placket from the turtleneck to the edges of the now-cardigan as closure.
(I had to re-check: It is not longer at the left side, it is just me having a wierd pose on the picture).

I had a gray sweater almost exactly like this that I deconstructed into boot cuffs, 2 scarves, and I may still have some left! I love how you remade this...I'm such a sucker for button details ;) Great job!

I have a thing for buttons too. It was the main reason that I wanted to save this sweater from the great unknown (aka. the thrift shop).

Well aren't you just the busy bee with all your funky sweater refashions? !?
