We had received a couple sweaters from my friend, Patti. The color and material were nice. They were men’s sweaters but huge. Paul said he liked this oatmeal colored one. So, I measured the boy across his chest and around his arms and then drew those lines on the sweater.
You can see Paul’s measurements sketch on the left bottom.
I carefully trimmed off the ribbing from the bottom of the sweater to save it intact.
Then I cut to my measurements.
I just trimmed the sleeves, so I didn’t have to mess with the ribbing.
Here is the finished sweater on the awesome 9th grade GQ model- ready for high school.
