Ruffle it up
A while ago I was give this very long charcoal grey cardigan by my mother in law - because I like that sort of thing (aparently). I don't! the quality of the knit was rather patchy and the pockets had stretched in an unattractive fashion when they had been sewn on. It was way too long and frumpy.
I put it in the drawer and forgot about it. Then I saw this in the Burda magazine.
I thought I'd use this as inspiration for improving this cardigan. So I chopped off the length, Hemmed it. removed the pockets and cut strips to make ruffles from the off cut.
It's ok and I at least might get some wear out if it now!
