Sequenced Cardigan / Gorta
So I happened to stop off at my local Gorta shop last week, a regular occurrence as you never know what absolute gem you may find. Boy was I lucky I did this time! As I was thralling through the jackets/cardigans section (and let me tell you in all honesty the selection wasn't great) I happened across a thigh length forest green sequenced cardigan, BOOM. It is beautiful and the detail is amazing! Luckily there are only a few sequences missing and no rips. It's way too big, with thick shoulder pads but I am delighted someone's Nana decided that they didn't want it anymore because it was an absolute STEAL at €10!!
I had initially decided that I would alter it and wear it as a long loose cardigan, perfect for the Christmas season ahead. However on second thoughts and taking into account how long it is I thought why not transform it into a dress instead?! I would get a lot more wear out of it particularly during the party season and for years to come. I won't be able to do this myself as my sewing skills are quiet limited (to threading a needle really), but I will take it to The Zip Yard in Cork City next week and see what they think. I am very excited!
I will update ye on the outcome!
