wear: style challenge no.4

over the holiday weekend we squeezed in another project for the jane by design style challenge. 
from the very beginning, this was the challenge i was dreading. we each received a "festive" sweater and asked to fashion it into something "fresh and exciting." 
at first glance i didn't know how this monstrosity thing could become something i would ever wear; but after looking it over, i thought it may have some potential (buried deep beneath the gold stitching, cheesy appliqués, and ample beading).

the back panel of the sweater was a blank slate and i immediately pictured using it for a cowl-neck scarf. i cut the front panels off of the vest, and set them aside. i also cut off the button placket, thinking it may be useful later on. 
with the help of my favorite domestic-goddess (errr, my mom), i sewed the placket onto the back panel and then into a circle, making it a sort-of button-up cowl. i cut off the beads from the front of the vest and we added them to the front for a personalized touch.
i think it turned out pretty well, don't you?!


have you ever brought new life to something old (or ugly) in your closet? 
if so, share your photos here
