Weird turtleneck refashion – Maleta cu guler ciudat

18 May

In my entire life I don’t believe I have ever been more annoyed by any other turtlenecks other than this one. I have a few other pieces in my wardrobe that feature turtlenecks  and I wear them proudly, no problem , but there is this one piece that just won’t do what you want it to do, you know? To prove that I do not have too many cats in my house (is this a reference yet?) , here are the pics bellow :


In toata viata mea nu cred ca am fost mai stresata de vreo bluza cu gat ca aceasta. Mai am cateva in garderoba mea tot cu gat asa inalt, dar acest anumit specimen pur si simplu  isi face de cap, intelegeti? Ca sa va demonstrez ca nu am  prea multe pisici in casa  , am pus pozele jos :

Well, the blouse was a few sizes too big for me anyway, so I had to alter not only the neck , but also the sleeves and  the width .


Bluza era oricum prea larga, asa ca pe langa guler a mai trebuit sa modific si manecile si latimea bluzei.

The turtleneck was cut off (no more annoyance) and it was re-hemmed.  I don’t know if you can notice from the pic, but I think it’s the narrowest hem I have ever made in my life. – a toast to progressive me.


Gatul a fost taiat jos (stres no more) si i-am facut un tiv nou. Nu stiu daca puteti observa clar din poze, dar ascet tiv este cel mai ingust pe care l-am facut in viata mea.  – sa ridicam paharul pentru progresiva de mine . 😉


Then the sleeves were cut because they were too loose and since those lovely buttons were just standing there, I thought I could make some short sleeves to make them pop.


Manecile au fost taiate pentru ca erau prea largi si am facut maneci scurte din cele lungi in asa fel incat sa expun acei nasturi draguti.

The result.

    Salut! Ma bucur ca gasesc in sfarsit un blog de acest gen si in limba romana. Te felicit pentru el! Spune-mi te rog daca pentru proiectul acesta ai folosit ac special pentru material elastic sau doar ai umblat la presiunea piciorusului masinii? Vad ca nu ti s-au format valuri la guler dupa ce i-ai facut tivul.

      Buna! Ma bucur ca exista si autohtoni interesati de acest subiect 🙂 Cat despre acest refashion , nu am folosit nimic special , am da cu fierul de calcat inainte sa cos si am tras tot timpul din spatele cusaturii sa iasa drept si sa nu se increteasca. Multumesc pentru vizita, te mai astept ! 😀
