Back...

This year winter was a big disappointment. In terms of cold. The winter sale was too good, no disappointments in that department... Since the so-called winter season has bid adieu, last week was dedicated to the gentle washing, bobble removing and packing away of my winter wear. During this process I found a old sleeveless button-down sweater. Its a hand-me-down from Mona my darling sister and has been knit by my super talented aunt. As far as I think this one is at least 12 years old. I never wore it coz it was too loose. Being me, I had to adjust and alter it. BTW I love to alter my clothes and that to in new ways. This is how I styled and altered it...

As usual I don't have the 'before' look of the sweater. I realized to click snaps after I had cut it. Well its never too late, correct? Since I have clicked snaps I will let them do the the talking...








Stitched satin ribbons and added a button at the back. 




The loop for the button is a thick elastic thread.
