When Andrea came to visit us last, she brought several dresses along with this old blazer to see if there was something we could do with it. The blazer definitely had potential, but something about it wasn’t quite working, so we decided to revamp it!


We decided to convert the blazer into one of our Cardi-Blazer designs and picked out a tan for the accent color, which kept it appropriate for work. We also noticed that there was a stain on the sleeve, but we wanted to hem the sleeves 3/4 length anyways, so we just made sure we went up high enough.


Now Andrea’s well-loved blazer has been converted into something new, just in time to avoid the donation pile. Live on, blazer!
