Being tall is great most of the time. But being tall and busty--while nursing-- makes it hard to find shirts that are long enough. I've had a bright blue shirt for a few years, and usually just pair with some jeans. This winter it just wasn't working. The length is just too short and I'm not comfortable in it.
I lined up the seams, then cut down the front middle.
I could have just left it here, but I wanted to make sure it looked nice.
Using some neon green bias tape I had on hand I stitched it on each side of the cut.
Then I folded the sweater to the inside and stitched it again.
To make sure the bias was secure and would look nice I followed the first line of stitching again.
You can barely see the two lines of stitching, but is gives it a nice weight. I ironed both sides of the front.
And there you have it, a nice bright shirt turned cardigan.
And if I remember I got this shirt for $2 at old navy! When my hubby got home from work he said it looked really nice too!
