I made this sweater pretty much from scratch. I didn't have a pattern so I made my own on a sheet of plastic. It turned out nicely and fits me good...I wore it to school and got a lot of compliments so I'm guessing I did something right. It was a learning experience for me: the first sleeves I made were waaay too tight so I had to make new ones, then I sewed the hood inside out and got to know my seam ripper very well. The main (black) part is from an old dress my auntie gave me (that was way huge on me) and the mickey mouse material was a curtain i bought at Value Village, and last but not least, the cuffs I just cut off an old shirt I had.
Here it is lying on the beautiful background of my brother's bed:
Here's me wearing it:
