I started this sweater a few months back and finished it about 2 months later... unravelled it as it didn't fit at all and knit it up again. Wore it out to lunch with my daughter and she took a look at it and said.. Mom you are not as fat as you think you are, you shouldn't be wearing fat clothes.
Hurt my feelings something awful... but then I thought about it and decided she was right. The sweater did nothing for me.
Well, I didn't feel like frogging it again so I decided to fix the neckline with some crocheting, leave the neck open like a v, take out the zipper from the front, attach a bow to the back so I could have a bit of a pleat there.
Then I added buttons to one side and crocheted some loops for the buttons. That's where I lost another inch and I think that's about it.
I do hope my picture shows up... there should be two of them. One shows the upper part of the sweater, minus my face, and the other shows a big of the bow.
