Upcycle - From Sports Coat to Tank Top


Some men's blazer's are made from beautiful wool fabric and can be found aplenty
at secondhand stores quite cheap. 

I wanted to upcycle it into something that I could wear.
I cut it up so that I could retain the pocket and placed it across the chest.

I knitted panels, then stitched bits of coloured wool into them.
I then placed these over the front and back.
I didn't hem the straps so that in time they will fray a little.

Worn with a top underneath, it looks rather good.
