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 is an additional picture of the rework without the flash that was used in the first "after" picture (to show the added details)...
