Sweater Reconstruction

So this is my sweater reconstruction á la Alli_Lucy. I bought the sweater for $3 at an outlet mall when I needed something to cover my shoulders in the movie theater (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants II btw). It was hardly the best fit, but I'd been wanting a sweater I wouldn't feel bad about cutting up. So this was my experiment. I had no bias tape so I used ribbon. Not the best idea because the ribbon was slippery and in combination with the stretchy sweater looks rumbly. But the sweater feels really nice, and the ribbon is silky. It's a good cuddly sweater. Thanks for the tut, Alli_Lucy!

Cute! I really like the look of the satin ribbon.
