Lately I've gotten quite interested in reworking and refashioning things from my wardrobe. Here's a top which I got for £1 from a charity shop, but which would never do, as it didn't suit my shape, nor did it suit my profession.
Sorry for the blurry photo.
I chopped off that whole bottom band, cut it in half lengthwise and trimmed the side seams, which were sloped. I took three of the resulting rectangles and sewed them to the bottom of the wrap, then hemmed everything with my most serger-like stitch. Added some ties in a nice location and voila!
Now a sensible cardigan. Hooray!
I've got plans to refashion a whole bunch of things in my wardrobe, but this was the least tricky (and least sentimental) of the lot, so it got the scissors first.
