Re-purposing a Duster Cardigan
I am a huge advocate for using all of your clothes in your closet. Cardigans CAN be used for more than two or three seasons.
As a matter of fact, you can wear them all year round.
I found this cardigan a few seasons ago, and have been using it as a cardigan but then realized it has buttons and a tie-belt!!!
What better way to re-purpose than to turn it into a dress!
This cardigan is thicker material and ribbed. That made it easier to make this into a dress. I would not recommend a thinner or shorter duster due to being see-through or too short.
I did go true to size with this one but I would recommend going a size larger for length! One thing I do love is the cardigan came with additional buttons which I can add to the bottom instead of have a larger slit in the front.
Overall, this is a perfect way to re-purpose a piece in the closet that is usually stored away for the majority of the year.
What's even cooler is you don't have to have a duster cardigan with buttons already. You can snag some from your local hobby store and sew them on to achieve this same look!
Do you have a cardigan in your closet that you can re-purpose?
