Refashion: Jumper to Vest

Refashion: A man's woollen jumper
Into: A vest for me
Inspired by: Gina and Mim
Another woollen jumper from the Op Shop, this time successfully made into something for me. The jumper was dyed using Ebony Black but turned out deep green. I started the refashion with a cut up the front then took the side seams in a little to give it some shape. The collar was then cut down to about half its original size and part of it was used for the front piece with the brooch. The rest of the collar and the sleeves were sewn on the bottom of the vest to give it extra length.
