In honor of Valentine's Day, I decided to makeover this outrageously pink linen blazer. I like pink. I like polka dots. But this blazer just seemed to have a bit too much of both. Plus, I felt like the patch pockets and boxy style didn't really suit the fun, feminine fabric.
So I removed the pockets and collar, cutting a deeper neckline as well. I chopped off the sleeves, leaving just a little cap sleeve. I rounded the corners of the bottom edges. I took in a couple inches on each side. And finally, I used strips from one of the discarded sleeves to create the binding for all my raw edges.
Now it's much more fun and flirty, and a little less overwhelming.
