Sweater Coat: A Re-Design in Progress

I decided to actually take the time to photograph the steps in a redesign project.
I often plan to do this . . . 
and somehow, I seem to always get carried away and forget.

Ok. So here goes.
THE "BEFORE" SWEATER



INSPIRATION FOUND ON THE INTERNET

 

GATHERING SOME  "Junque" THAT MAY COME IN  HANDY. . .   


MORE STUFF . . .FRINGE, BEADS, ETC.


CUT OUTS TO MAKE INTO ROSETTES.  PLUS MAS.

THE LAYOUT



THE CONSTRUCTION



THE DETAILS. . .




ASYMETRICAL SKIRT HEMLINE




THE "AFTER" SWEATER   

The final sweater can be worn as a tunic, coat or sweater.  
With one-of-a-kind detailing, there is not another to be found! 
Details include: 
Fabric Rosettes (hand-cut with burnt melted by flame, then constructed.)
Neckties, Fringes plus the hand Beadwork.



Take a look at your old, boring sweaters or other items.
Hmmm . . . What can we do with them?
