*I pledge not to buy any new RTW or thrifted for my after retirement "Back to School" wardrobe.
*I pledge to shop from my closet.
Green crochet cardigan from the closet, refashioned this year with only a change from worn crochet buttons to mother of pearl. Posted earlier with white linen pants refashion.
This one qualifies as "Grandmas sweater". It was in my pre-retirement wardrobe for many years.
• Audition lace in the sewing room stash.
• Removed the buttons.
Baste and hand-stitch the lace.
• Hand-stitch was a great Presidential debate project.
• Updated lace trim cardigan to wear with jeans, denim skirts, almost anything.
I LEARNED:I searched Pinterest and found many cute cardigan refashions. Some had lace, others had light weight fabrics.
|AFTER: Lace added|
Wearing tomorrow with denim skirt.
|Lace auditions |

|Wide hem lace is very old.|

1st re-fashion was to remove worn crochet buttons.
Added Mother of Pearl
