Sweater to vest

A former favourite sweater of mine. I didn't like the bell sleves and the hood anymore and the hems of the sleeves and the button holes (and the buttons) were worn out.

So I chopped of most of the sleeves and the hood, rehemmed dem and sewed the buttonholes closed.

Love the idea of the hair thingy for a fastening.

It is in fact a ring brooch (buckle?). Similar to the ones my forefathers used in the viking age. This one is just made from wood in stead of metal.

I love it! I love short sleeve cardigans -- they come in so handy during the warmer months. Great job.
