|Grab a shirt that fits well, a little loose is best. Turn it inside out.
1. Smooth it out flat
2. Then fold it in half
|Then you have a bodice piece (for the sweater we will use the same pattern piece for the front and back)|
|Next for the sleeve:
6. Line the sleeve up with the fold of the sleeve against the edge of the paper and trace the arm.
7. When you get to the top, fold the shirt over so the seam is exposed and laying flat and trace the curve.
|Then to cut out the pieces I used this white sweater that was in the “re-do” pile at my house. Any sweater will do, just find a sweater you wish was a cardigan.|
|Lastly I added a button
18. I sewed a button on the right side and I folded a small piece of elastic in half to create a loop and sewed it to the inside of the left side. The loop goes around the button.
