What materials did you use? I took a sweater I found at Goodwill and changed it into a cardigan with a button front and a scalloped neckline.

What are you most proud of? Using the old waistband to create a button band down the center front.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sew slowly when creating the scalloped neckline. I used a taffeta as the facing to give it some stability.

Was this from a class?
