None of the knits I've had so far suited this kind of re-style, until I found this simple white Max top at the op shop last week. So I decided to give it a go. I was going for some embellishment that wouldn't be too "in your face", so I decided to stick to the white look.
First I sewed some mini doilies found at the op shop the same day. They were the perfect colour, almost the same white as the cardigan.
Then I used some white nylon tights (also from the op shop) to make flowers using this tutorial. I was originally wanting to wear those tights but when I tried them on at home I realized they had a hole in them. Must have been fate!
|eerr, I've got a flower growing in my armpit, help!|
And so there, a nice woolen cardi customized by me and that I'm happy to wear, that looks nice but not too over the top to wear with my PJs when I go to the mall. Yay!
I'd be quite keen to try another refashion similar to this one next time...
More creative goodness here.
