- It’s as if I got some new clothes – and all I did was re-work some items that I had in my wardrobe but wasn’t wearing. As spring rolls around I intend to liven up some of last year’s clothes using the same principles. Maybe I can add some white topstitching and colorful buttons to an old jacket, or create a pair of slim ankle length pants from an old pair of boot cut ones. I could use a printed scarf to create a cowl to compliment a colorful V neck sweater or just make an inset that looks like I have a pretty camisole on underneath.
Cashmere Sweater Before:
Cashmere Sweater After:
- I swapped the basic white buttons on a sleeveless cashmere sweater for some pretty pewter ones I had purchased in Paris a few years ago (before and after below), and covered the beige ribbon on the creamy white sweater above with a gorgeous velvet ombré that I found in my local stationary store. I love the way the sweater looks with a black skirt or pair of skinny grey pants!
