Some time ago I have confiscated my husband's striped sweater. The sweater was really nice, made of 95 per cent wool, overall a very nice knit. However, it had its share of problems. It was very stretched out, and it had several holes on the sleeves and shoulders. Not only there were enough holes, but they were sloppily stitched in a way the holes were beyond repair.
So, after an intricate planning and scrap-matching process I ended up with a shirt I am quite thrilled to wear.
Should you want to do something similar, please proceed to Curvy Girl's Refashions for more details on the process itself. Do not forget to include two magical ingredients - adhesive iron-on fabric and a piece of elastic. Hope you enjoy it!
