That's really cute. I love how you were able to perfectly line everything up too!

I'm totally going to try this with one of my husbands beautiful sweaters that he never wears!

lol, thanks.  It took me a while to make because I hand sewed part under the bust and around by hand because I was afraid of the sewing machine stretching it out and puckering, so I just put it on my dress form inside out and started sewing it together.  I have messed around with thicker sweaters before and nothing ever turned out.  This one was quite thin.  I never thought I could ever make something like this out of the sweater before.  It just struck me all of the sudden, the idea.  I guess it takes practice to know what works and what doesn't.  Good luck.
