Evolution


I found this cranberry colored jumper with a boiled wool texture that looked cozy and interesting. It was too long and had unfortunate pockets, one over the belly and another about 6 inches below that. I don't know what the designer was thinking. Maybe they were from Austrailia or were just fascinated with kangaroos. I shortened the length and used the fabric to broaden the sides. I then moved the pockets to the sides. I paired the dark cranberry up with some turquoise and I am ready to face the -15 C breezes.

I love the fuzzy texture of this jumper but it picks up every piece of lint and doghair floating around the house. I expect it will be a shade of pink in the near future. Off to see what they are doing at Visible Monday:   http://notdeadyetstyle.blogspot.com/

You're very creative, with your re-design of this dress - I love the end result. And of course I love the colored tights (see my own post) : > Thanks so much for linking up to Visible Monday!

Paula, what you did with the dress is amazing. I cannot imagine being able to redo something like this. I know what you mean about fabric that picks up doghair and lint. I have a velvet blazer that ends up looking like a mess every time I wear it.
