All I need is a ball and chain to complete the ensemble.
Let’s see what we can do to make this better.
First, cut off the huge sleeves.
Save them for later.
Pin down the sides to fit.
Sew along your pin line on both sides of the sweater.
Trim along the seam line.
Pin and sew both shoulders to fit. Trim seams.
Put sleeve on inside out and pin to fit.
Pin to fit and sew both sleeves on the pin line. Trim each seam.
Turn sleeve right side out an place inside armhole, right sides together.
Pin in place, matching bottom and top seams.
Trim away the amount of length you need and save the bottom of the sweater so you’ll still have the nice finishing at the bottom of your sweater.
Next, pin and sew right sides together, matching the stripes.
Press the seam flat and cut press Heat and Bond under the seams to keep the seams flat.
And now you have a nice, new, fitted Spring Sweater.
