I wanted a really (really really) sweater, without looking like I was on a polar expedition. I had a 100% wool mens' cardigan in my refashion pile (no before picture, I'm really slacking on that. I will improve, I promise!).
I took it into my size and added some pretty enameled coconut buttons, that I had been saving.
I like how it is practical, without being too frumpy. It has a hint of chicness.
(Hm...I might shorten the sleeves a bit, I think, now looking at the pictures)
