This sweater has been in my closet for several years. I like it, but the double breasted large brown buttons that were on the front of it (sorry- no before pics) weren't working for me so I never wore it. I only liked to wear it when I had a large preggo belly sticking out in front and then the sweater could hang open to the side. Since I'm out of that stage it was time to refashion this sweater. I dug through my grandpa's old ties and removed the buttons and came up with this look the other day. SUPER easy refashion that gave me a new sweater!
