Hah, here I am agonizing over getting rid of a dozen old sweaters, and I have one with tags that I need to decide on.

I bought this during NAS, and hemmed and hawed, tried the smaller size, but didn't like what the stripes did on my bust in the small. I like this, but the ties on the side draw too much attention to a part of my body that needs no emphasis.

I thought about just cutting the ties off, but I have another idea -- maybe cutting the ties and reattaching one short strip of maybe 1.5", connecting the front and back so that a little side detail is still there, just not so prominent.

(note: in the photos, I did not tie the ties. Oops.)

What do you think? Worthwhile? Keep and alter? Keep and leave as is? Return? I've included two photos with a styling idea -- sweater under one of my roomy vests.
