My, My, my eye

First, a funny story. When people ask why I sew or knit, I say it's because I have control issues. When I'm shopping, I'll always look at a garment and think how I'd change the color, or fabric, or something. Just recently, I was looking at this pattern with a friend, and said the following: "It's perfect. I would just add thiss, change this, and change this."

Lima, by Jane Ellison in Sulka by Mirasol Yarns. I said it's perfect! I would just shape it more below the bust, add a few buttons, and puff the sleeves for a more current silhouette. And low and behold, I found this:

The puff sleeve cardigan from Victoria's Secret. Sadly, no longer available in this color, but in pale pink and black for $59.
