Today’s remake is one that uses the remnants of this fabulous frock! Remember this guy?? (Click HERE for a little refresher!)
Those stripes were amazing!
I cut it up…
…and ended up with this piece. This was one of my faves!!
Now there was that panel of red material that just didn’t have a home anymore. I gave it a home…
You guys got a little teaser of today’s remake, yesterday. Oh just wait…there are more pics.
This housecoat had a lot going on.
The mix of patterns, the ric rac, the bow-like pockets.
I loved the color and saw this as a total challenge, so…
…I had to take it home. Those stripes, dots, and ric rac were counting on me.
Oh, I think you’re going to love the piece that I’m currently working on.
There’s some stripes going on, some polka dots going on, and some ric rac going on. It’s a fierce triple threat going on right now!!
Check back later today for the after look!!!
I’m a cardigan girl, so when I set eyes on this by Boden sweater, I knew I needed to DIY one of my own!
I had an almost identical grey sweater in my collection – aside from some thicker ribbing – but this sweater is something that can be snagged anywhere from Old Navy or Target, to a local thrift store.
(Sidenote – this is a project that can work for pretty much any sweater that you might have in your closet.)
Here’s a rundown of the supplies you’ll need:
It’s getting colder out, the holidays are around the corner, and I’m already thinking about what to wear for all the holiday events, from the cocktail parties to the weekend brunches. This year I’m definitely going to do some sort of winter whites and Kari’s outfit is getting me excited to find one of my own.
I got this lovely sack from an antique shop. After talking the owner down to $3 I began to question even spending that much!
It was hideous, but the material is a beautiful lace on top and interesting plaid on the skirt that added promise!
Let’s see what Kari makes with this one!
