ALTERED SWEATER/JACKET

THIS WAS ORIGINALLY A TURTLE NECK, LARGE SIZE SWEATER. I CUT OFF THE NECK AREA, SLICED IT UP THE FRONT AND EMBELLISHED THE FRONT OF THE SWEATER WITH 2 DIFFERENT STRIPED KNIT TOPS. I WISH I HAD TAKEN MORE OF A CLOSE-UP OF THE FRONT BECAUSE IT REALLY IS QUITE CUTE. IT HAS A SORT OF FLOPPY COLLAR ON ONE SIDE AND IT TIES IN THE MIDDLE. THE BACK OF THE SWEATER WAS SHORTENED AND FLOUNCES MADE OF THE STRIPED TOPS WERE ADDED TO MAKE THIS PIECE FUN TO WEAR.
