This is a post from March 2016 that I wanted to bring over. I wonder, do I have any new readers?
This was an opshop find that I pounced on to replace my old favourite gardening jumper*. Same colour, a little larger, far fewer moth holes, but with a stiff scratchy zip. I cut the zip out, stitched up the resulting two layer edge and put two buttons with loops as the new closure. I’m so pleased with the transformation. From a harsh, cold, modern look to a soft, warm, old fashioned one. Much more appealing to me anyway.

*a lovely soft Burberry one found in a charity shop in Edinburgh, dahlink.
