OMG, they say that fashion never takes a vacation…at least that’s what I was told by Gray Chandler Murray as she gave me my Jane by Design style challenge number four JUST before the holiday weekend. There’s nothing like opening an e-mail from your potential (fictional) boss on the Friday before Christmas with instructions to revamp and ugly….and I mean REALLY ugly holiday vest and make it WEARABLE and FASHIONABLE, in other words…she wanted me to take a fashion don’t and make it a do, do, do.
Taking the vest from THIS
a cute bateaux neck sleeveless shirt that can be worn with some black tights and a either ballet flats or heels.
I simply grabbed one of my many scarves and a needle and thread and went to work. Turning the vest around was key, as the neckline was PERFECT when presented back to front like that. I simply re-aligned the buttons by pulling the center button holes over to the side, for a slightly off-center v-neck back. Draping the scarf and stitching it to the neckline and continuing the drape down the back created a more flowing look. So, if Aunt Mable tries to pawn her ugly sweater off on you this year…you know what to do. Grab a pair of scissors, some needle, thread and go scavenging through your closet to see how you can go from FRUMPY to FAB.
