Neatly aligned
Published On: May 4, 2024

Four widely spaced buttons on a closely fitted sweater are…not enough to keep the button band neatly aligned. Especially if your bust measurement and waist measurement differ significantly.

I am…far more generously built than Verity here is. And even on her, the button band does not hang straight. So since I put my sweaters on over my head and don’t mind losing the cardigan functionality, I’m going to fix it.

I’ll start by flipping the sweater inside out and running a line of stitching up one side of the button band. Once it’s done, I’ll flip it rightside out and sew the front of the button band too. Then…then I’m coming for those buttons.
