Bolero and skirt from cardigan

I liked the flowers on this one, but too much of a good thing, isn't good in this instance. 
Then I thought of Carissas refashions of clothing with bold colours and patterns, and gave it a try.

It ended up as a skirt

and a double-breasted bolero.

Much better with just a little flowery goodness at a time.

Lovely print! They both turned out great, but I think the skirt is my favorite of the two.
