My dad had a huge roll of this tan knit material in the attic and he hadn't touched it in 5 yrs so ... I stole it!!! (shhh! don't tell!)
As for the actual making of the sweater, I just took a sweater that I liked and kinda traced around it, added 1" extra on my drawing for seams. The neck is just one big rectangle of material that I just draped around my shoulder and pinned it how I liked. I'm *not* a skilled seamstress, so it took me about 2 hrs. The big buttons I also stole from my dad. He's an unending source of random odds and ends, I love it!
