Take a Walk on the Wild Side

This is my latest creation... a three-piece ensemble created from a ladies leopard print cardigan sweater with beaded trim.  I used the sleeves to create a pair of leggings.  The body of the sweater became a button-front swing jacket with short sleeves.  Scraps were used to make a matching braided headband and beaded pom-pon flower accessory.
The leggings measure 20" in length, with a 13" inseam and an elastic waist that fits up to 18".  The leggings can be scrunched to adjust the length, and the hems are trimmed with stretch lace and beaded flower accents.

The jacket measures approximately 9" across the front chest and 11" from shoulder to hem.  It fits up to size 5T.  I utilized the beaded motif on the chest of the original sweater to create a decorative pocket, which is also trimmed with a gross-grain ribbon bow.  Another bow adorns the hidden snap fasten at the neckline.  The original button front was used as much as possible, as was the original sweater hem.

This is a darling one-of-a-kind ensemble that is sure to turn any little girl into an adorable diva!  The price for this set is $100, US Postage Paid.  Click any image for a larger view.
