Sundress addition

To get some more wear out of my summer dress I refashioned a cardigan. It was a long and oversized RTW cardigan that just wasn't working for me. I forgot to take 'before' pictures, but the wonky hemline hit sort of just above the knee. I shortened it about 20 inches / 50 cm and used the cut offs for a 2 inch / 5 cm wide band to finish the hem and to make the ties. Easy job, but I'm really happy with the result.

Have a nice weekend!


  1. It's always good to turn a 'meh' garment into something better. Love the colour.

  2. Love this outfit!
    As I don't remember the original cardigan, I think this is a perfect case of saved by the scissors!

  3. Great save. Looks lovely with your new dress.
