From beast to beauty 003 - vintage flowers

A new from beast to beauty! Maybe some of you remember those posts, I made this one last year. And if you see that one you'll know where the title of the post came from. In these posts I'm making something new, something lovely, and something prettier, out of something that is ugly or unsightly. I bought this vintage huge thing ages ago, planning to make something lovely out of it. Until now it just layed in my closet catching dust. So finally I re-made it. The top isn't that ugly if you look at the first photo, but I couldn't make an ugly one haha. You can only see how big it is. But the thing is, this piece it way too short to wear as a dress and too long and clumsy for a jumper. So easy minded, I just cut about 15 centimeters off, sewed the hem again, and there it was: my new jumper. The result is lovely. It looks so old and vintage but in good condition. And I love the flower print on it so much, the fabric is so soft and light but still warm. Ahh I love this jumper, hihi! I'll do an outfit post about this one soon, I alreay got combinations on my mind! Do you think the cutt was an inprovement?

  1. I adore when people take something pre-loved and old, and turn into their very own unique piece! This is so gorgeous, to even begin with. x
