One side of Cardigan is longer than the other

Hello. I am almost done with a simple cardigan for my DD. The pattern is haiku from It is a sideways knit cardigan so the edges of the 2 cardigan openings are the cast-on and bound-off edges. Well, my cast-on edge is much looser than the bound off edge and so that side of the cardigan is longer than the right and looks sloppy. :cry:
How can I fix this? Thanks for any advice. BTW, I used the crochet cast-on method.

Maybe you could pick up stitches along the CO edge, and BO those stitches as you go? That way you’ll have a BO edge on that side as well.

I’m not sure what it will look like, but I imagine it will look fine. You could try it anyway…
