...you don't succeed, try try again. When re-imagining garments, much like a painting, sometimes a piece is just "off". Perhaps it is unbalanced, has no focal point or just isn't exciting enough to spend time with. If something can't get worse, no matter what you do, it will make just make it better. Such was the case with our original jacket. New sleeves, new zipper and a fun zip-girl pull elevated this bland beaded tweed to something fun. It is a piece to play with, to funk up a pair of jeans or spice up a plain dress. Take a second look at the sleepers in your closet and see what changes can add new life to pieces that languish, often unworn.
