My Green Tea Leaves Cardigan...UGH!!!

I finished the green Tea Leaves Cardigan, that is....all except, for working the button bands.  UGH!!!  It doesn't fit!  Even if I do add the button bands, it will not fit properly.  I'm a 38, so I selected to knit a size 40.  I very easily could have knitted a size 42 for myself.

UGH!!!  This is why I don't knit sweaters for myself.  I probably will rip out the entire thing and re-purpose the yarn, but probably not knit the same pattern.  Don't get me wrong, this sweater is lovely, but I think that it will look better on a slender body type, aka: a skinny person.  The bottom of the cardigan wants to flare out like wings making the hip area looking very wide.  Who wants that???

So....back to the drawing board......in search of yet another sweater.
