This is a great idea! It is a 'Ah Ha'!!! I too think of the best ideas when half away. The key is, "ALWAYS write them down. I often think, I'll remember and then I don't!

Dear MrsBowles,

I absolutely love your sweater and I want to tell you that I think your tutorial has helped me get a step closer to making a sweater coat that I have been putting off. I just couldn't quite figure out what to do with the waistline. If I decide to make it I will certainly let you know.

I have 4 old very bulky sweaters that I have been saving for this project.
Did you have an issue with raveling? If you ,mentioned that I didn't see it.
The 4 sweaters that I have are supposedly all natural cotton so there's no acrylic and no wool...

Thanks again in advance
Maxine

Hi Maxine,
I give a general answer to the raveling question on page 2. To your situation, and cotton knits specifically, I would suggest sewing a row of long straight machine stitches on either side of your cuts before or immediately after you cut. Cotton is the trickiest, but you'll still have some working time even if it thinks it wants to fall apart. Please send me a personal message when you post your coat just so I'm sure not to miss it. Can't wait to see it.
Thanks,
MB

Thanks a million MB...
I have so many projects in the making right now. Either planned on paper or already started. It's warming up right now so there is even a chance that I will be putting this off for the summer. But I am so excited that you have all but solved this for me... at least to an extent...

I will let you know if and when I move with it...

Rock On
