Oversized Shirt to Bubble Cardigan

Before this was an oversized shirt that was quite awful. The only thing worth saving it for was the soft striped jersey that became a lovely summer cardigan. I wanted to create an interesting shape that wasn't just your average cardigan. This required a lot of reshaping and sewing that I could not capture in clear instructions...
