Before & After: Reworked Wrap Vest

I really loved this wrap vest. It was one of those pieces that kept calling me back to look at it one more time. Once I gave in and placed my order, I could barely wait for it to arrive.

Then it finally arrived and I loved the look! However, the fit was a little too snug for my "girls" and broad shoulders ... A total downer. Squeezing into an outfit shifts the focus from the beauty of the piece and how flattering it could be, to how tight it is.

Despite the snug fit, I still really loved the funnel-style neckline and wrap feature. So, as usual, I went into "rework project mode". Once I decided to make alterations, I also wanted to add my personal "flavor". I love the results and can't wait to wear it.

Below are additional pictures of the rework...
