I'm not a big fan of sweaters or pullovers that are too short, because they accentuate my belly. But cardis are a whole other story, because they don't pull on the tummy as much and are so much more fun and easy to layer with longer shirts underneath.
I took this cotton sweater that fit great in the arms but was just too short in the body, cut down the front, finished the edges with single-fold bias tape, and added some snaps. So easy and SO much more useful now! I wear this all the time!
