One Cavalli Webbed Top Deconstructed & Reworked into Two Next Level Looks

I loved the webbed look of my never-worn fitted knit and lace top by Roberto Cavalli. However it's tight fit relegated it to Bermuda Triangle status ... forgotten in the back of the closet.

I had two reworked pieces that I felt could still use an extra touch of funky detailing to take them to the next level. This top was the perfect solution. Here are the results of my two weekend Phase II Rework Projects...

Phase II Rework Project One
The assymetrical top (a combination of two former sheath dresses) was pretty striking before I added the Cavalli detailing. I added the new touches to the shoulder and side of the assymetrical top's shorter side. I'm totally pleased with the punched-up drama created with this final rework phase.

Phase II Rework Project Two
I used the Cavalli detailing to add a funky, dramatic yet organically off-center v-neck (previously a crew neck) to my reworked high-low, open-back top. I also converted the hanging open back panel into a pleat-detailed oval shape.

See how I added more edginess to this top in my Phase II Rework project.
