Pink Crochet Sweater

old closure
I made this sweater over 4 years ago during one winter Olympics.  It is what I did while I watched.  At the time I used an antique pink boot button as the closure for the sweater.  The sweater was from an antique pattern ( that I found junking) so I figured it was fitting.  I also used antique rayon thread and size 10 pink discontinued  crochet thread.   I really loved this sweater and the pattern but I have almost never worn it.  I decided I didn't not like the way the closure looked and the way it would creep when worn so I just never wore it.

Today I was going through my clothes getting rid of things I don't wear or have out grown.  I didn't want to toss this but still didn't like the way it looked buttoned.

Hmm... well I made it I can just fix that.  So I sat down cut off the current button which will be much cuter on a baby's outfit and sewed on 5 sets of  closures.   The sweater isn't lop sided I just didn't put it on the mannequin well the sleeves are the same length and the new closures are not wonky.  I actually like this a ton more now and will wear it.  Before the sweater would creep up over my bosom and just looked weird.  This way the closures hold it in place and it does not creep now.  I also like the way the new closures open up the lace stitching around the edge and show it off more.
