For the pattern I simply layed a fitting jacket on top and started cutting. It worked out okay, but I think the neck opening is a little wide. Anyway.
I then embellished the wazzooo out of it. I finally cut into two Spoonflower swatches I have had for quite some time: the deers on the back and mushroom girl on the front. Red Riding Hood trim for just above the hem and colorful fabric from my stash for the front facing: done.
The idea to upcycle felted sweaters is not mine. Shelly from Lemontree Studio recently listed a whole bunch of really cute wool felted cardigans in her shop.
The only thing I didn't like about it was the thought of itchy, scratchy wool. Hence the cashmere.
Have a great week.
