This post is in collaboration with Deseret Industries. They’re one of my go-to’s for my DIY refashion projects since there’s one within a few miles of my home. I went to the store looking for a solid color holiday sweater to refashion but found this striped sweater instead, there were so many options! They had plenty of solids and patterned sweaters so if you’re wanting a sweater to refashion like mine so you can wear it to your holiday gatherings, you’ll be sure to find one at Deseret Industries.
This top is a little too short to my liking, and the top below got bleached so the gingham print is all faded now. It was suppose to be a navy blue gingham print. I saved the top because I knew I could use the white lace on the bottom for a future project!
the comparison of how the top is suppose to look vs. the bleached faded color.
#momslife this is the behind the scenes of my photo shoot taking place. It just makes sense that the cheetah would try to climb down from the branch onto the shirt, doesn’t it? 😉
