Then & Now Refashion Revisited

Happy Friday All !!!! Yipppee... I can't wait to get my weekend started..... in the meantime...

.... this Friday brings you a Then &Now Refashion Revisited.

If you don't know me I love to refashion items to give it a different look or just simply new life.


 This black lace was a pullover garment I purchased in  2014, despite not liking how the garment looked on me, the fit was good.  I didn't want to leave without them, there was that something ... that something kind of potential and purchased 4 of them at $4.99 each.

I was inspired by Vero Moda lace bomber jacket.

2015

Of course, I could've used a sewing pattern, but heck why reinvent the wheel.  These pullover tops were just the ticket to take them from oh hum to just what I need.



2016
It's Jean Friday @ work and this lacey number is pefect for a hot & humid day....  Paired it with black linen pants and a black/white printed tank... totally eccentric...lol


If one is looking for an easy refashion... shop your closet and you are sure to find a top, dress or pants that needs new life....


Below are progress pics of how I turned the pullover tops into summer jackets.







Until then,

Have an Awesome Weekend!
