Cut-up Jumper

Recently I blogged about a Japanese pattern-book called Cut-up Couture. The patterns take men's garments and turn them into interesting female garments.
I made a jumper from two XL man's sweatshirts, bought in Penney's for €12 each. The ribbon was bought in the wonderful, huge, Hickey's in Galway near Eyre Square.
It balloons at the back, and ties with a ribbon at the front.
The pattern calls for men's L sweatshirts so perhaps this corner which takes from the "ballooness". This would be avoided if the sleeve and side seam of the original jumper were the same length.

I like things cosy and snuggly, this is more crazy and zany than practical.
