Reindeer Sweater Cardigan to V-neck Sweater

This is a super easy refashion. This polar vortex here is forcing me to refashion all winter clothes.
This sweater's buttons instantly fell off as soon as I put on the cardigan. Like poof! Drop, Drop! I didn't like the buttons and it was too long to fit over my hips without strain. So I decided I needed to shorten the sweater, which simply I folded the band up from the bottom and sewed across. Then to turn into into a v-neck by sewing the middle bands on top of each other and then sewed a long rectangle. All of the buttons came off. Here is my finished product!

Cheers,
Lauren

Those weird toggle buttons didn't do anything for the sweater anyway, did they?
