What are you most proud of? I'm much happier with this cardigan now. I shortened the sleeves which immediately made it more wearable. I've now finished adding a zip front. This meant I had to remove the buttons, fold the buttonbands back and hand sew in an open ended zip. I was also unhappy with the width of the hips and was planning to slim them down, but the zip addition has made me much happier with the overall result. Thanks Carol!

Thanks for helping me build my confidence with these skills Carol. Instead of having a failure sitting in my wardrobe, I have a cardigan I now wear all the time. Still 2 things to fix though....
