Friday Refashion

TGIF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.  OMG... this week has been so taxing on me.  Our office has been in the process of a big renovation, which is nearing the end.  However, there are boxes, furniture, tools, etc. all over.  Then there is the spackling, sanding, sawing, drilling & hammering... I think I have developed a nervous condition over the last 2 months.

Today was the last day to have all our personal items packed and ready to be moved by the guys to our newly renovated spot.  Well I am ready!  I already told them if they can't move all my boxes by monday make sure to move the 4 boxes marked shoes and the one marked handbags, I can work around not having the other items....lol


Of course, over the last few days everyone is rocking casual, sneakers, t-shirts... you get my drift.  That is all fine and dandy, but I am really not a sneaker/t-shirt gal, unless it's the weekend.  As usual, in the process of preparing my clothes for work, I remembered a cardigan I'd purchased some time ago.  I really didn't care for the 3/4" sleeves and it was a tad too long for my torso.


Cut  the sleeves off at the armholes, serged, then folded to the inside and final stitched.  I set my stitch length at 2.8 to prevent any puckering of the armhole.  I cut the rib band from the bottom of the sweater and removed 1" and reattached the rib band.   Presto... a refashioned loft cardi vest paired with old $10 jeans and an old NY&Co black button up.


Until then,
Have a Great Weekend.

You rocked that cardi to a new level. I love the look of cardigans but have a hard time pulling them off.

Sheila said...

Thank you Andrea. I fell hard for cardigans after being inspired by a few blogging divas, and bought a lot of them. Only to realize, every cardigan does not work for me. So I am slowly refashioning the ones I have issues with, especially, the boyfriend style ones and the ones with 3/4" sleeves.

Thank you Carolyn. You can definitely get the look. Heck, you are an awesome knitter and could knit a beautiful vest. As well as refashion a cardigan... go for it.
