I made this upcycled jacket/cardigan last spring...and was CRAZY excited to put it on her a couple of weeks ago and see that it still fits!
I think I was pretty successful - obvious by my enthusiasm for the garment expressed at that top of this post. However, when my husband first saw it and I refused to tell him the source of the fabric...he said, and I quote, "I don't know what you made it out of but it looks like something your grandmother would wear." Whatever. He is literally a t-shirt and jeans guy. Not primarily - (almost) EXCLUSIVELY. His opinion can only count for so much, right?
So here it is in action, and the annual boat parade a few weeks ago.
(Those sailboats weren't on parade - they're at the marina. The parade happened after dark - boats decorated with crazy Christmas lights sail down to the mouth of the river and then back up. Just for clarification. I don't have any pictures of that because I was busy keeping my kids on the dock and out of the water!)
