i heart my new old sweater

my mom gave me this sweater. it as lovely shade of green but had developed two hole. and right in the boob area too. heehee. it was a bit big on me but after accidentally washing and drying the cashmere sweater it fits great! i love three quarter sleeves anyway. 🙂

a while back i had won a giveaway from meg at brassy apple (formerly creative outlet designs). i won a package of her fabric scarps that she uses to make her awesome shaggy jeans. and it was just what i needed to upcycle the sweater.

she has a contribution in the current issue of make it mine showing a knit top she embellished. i love the bird themes and thought i would put one into the redesign of the sweater.

i added some vintage buttons i picked up from jennifer’s antiques here in conway. i really love the way it looks and have been wearing it non stop.
