Shopping My Closet: Making Deconstructed & Reworked Finds


My latest reworked project involves my Doo.Ri cropped wool cardigan. I actually wear it quite often ... I'm a sucker for the indulgent, comforting feel of extra long sleeves on a sweater. I just wanted to punch it up a bit and take it to the next level.

I added some glam rock edge by attaching this funky buckle closure just under the button collar. It's from one of my never-worn belts.

Update: I tend to do my rework projects on the weekends. This weekend, I also added a few more tweaks to my reworked double-bike-chain open sweater clip ... I tweaked it with a few additional, smaller chains.

Here are the results...
