cardigan upcycle

I bought this lovely, looks new, White Stuff linen cardigan from the charity shop, it is a lovely style and fit, except the really long sleeves!  While Sarah was here at the weekend she suggested shortening them.

Bravely I let her loose on my £3.75 investment, while having a glass of wine!

She used sewing thread to put in a ‘life line’ and proceeded to unpick my sleeves.  She then cast off the stitches and left me with the job of deciding whether to roll a hem or make a wider, folded hem and add a button, which do you prefer?
