Little jacket

Look how unflattering and dated the original garment was:
It's a pouffy, satiny, pullover top. Like something a grandma in the '80s might have worn. (I'm looking at you, Nanny. RIP!)
It was surprisingly easy to make it into this bolero, or what I call a "little jacket."
For more, here's the full post on my blog, Craft, Thrift, or Die!

Did the tag on this top say "Castleberry"? Because I have a very similar Castleberry top in my stash that's bright pink with little elephants, and I haven't been able to decide what to do with it. I may steal your idea. I looks so cute!

Great refashion! I would never wear the original unless it was Halloween, but great idea of turning it into a little jacket.

Elizabeth, I think the label said "Josephine." I look forward to seeing the pink elephant jacket!
