This refashion came about because of a three-quarter-length sleeve knit shirt that I was so-so on to begin with (I owned it in a light green as well) somehow ended up with a mysterious stain right on the front. No idea how that happened, but needless to say, the shirt wasn't getting worn. I also happen to have an aversion to throwing things out if they can be fixed. I decided to try and turn it into a cardigan using a tutorial I had seen somewhere (I am so sorry I lost the link to it). I forgot to take a "before" picture, so just envision a v-neck 3/4 sleeve lavender knit top.
I decided to cut up the middle per the tutorial and folded under 1/2" on either side then basted. To cover the stain I used 1 1/2" wide grosgrain ribbon running vertically up each side. Below is a picture of it pinned on.
