I have this sweater (picture below) that too tight for me. When I wore this, I see my belly. You know, it's a girl thing. I thought I should cut it and make it into a cardigan. Instead a normal cardigan, I want to make an abnormal cardigan. Well, not really. Haha. I want to give it a simple details. Whether you see it 'too much' or not, I still want to add ribbons on it.
It's really easy to make. You just need a sweater, 6 ribbons (the length is up to you, mine is approx. 45 cm), scissors, and don't forget needle and threads or sewing machine for sewing.
This is the steps:
1. Fold your sweater in half, lengthwise, in the front side.
2. Cut the middle of front side with scissors. Be careful, don't cut the back side.
3. Fold the cut edges about 1 cm to the back, then sew. This is a basic hem. Actually, this step isn't necessary. But I suggest you to do it, so it looks neat.
4. After that, sew the ribbons. It's up to you where you want your ribbons to be sewn. But make sure they're mirrored for both side.
Tips: Before you sew the ribbons, use a fray check to prevent the ribbon edge from fraying. Or you can use a lighter on the edge, but don't burn it. You can fold the ribbon edge twice and sew it, this is called a rolled hem.
