Gertie Sews Vintage Casual cardigan

I made this cardy from an old wool sweater. I love it, and it’s a refashion too.

The cardigan is fitted and looks great with a full skirt or pencil skirt, but it’s also completely wearable with up to date fashion. I’ve worn it loads at work, with skirts and trousers and more casually with my jeans.

I used ribbon for the button bands and kept the original hem and cuffs, just making a new neck edging.
