Jumper/Cardigan refashion

I had this Jumper which didn't fit right. Taking inspiration from some of the refashions I have seen, I decided it would work better as a cardigan.
I marked down the middle rib with pins.

Pinned some dark blue eyelet ribbon into place on both sides of the front. Stitched it down.
Cut up the centre, turned the lace to the back - folding the ends in, and top stitched it down. Now it works like a facing, but one you don't mind showing now and then.

Yes! Result.
I have been wearing it all week.
