Reconstructing the Unsellable

I posted this cheetah print oversized top/dress in the Bullyvard section of Anagon Collection months ago. I think it's because of the size and because of Manila's weather, that's why my clients weren't really fond of this cotton vintage find. I love the print so much though, and decided that I need to make it more wearable. I thought of cutting the garment in the middle and wear it as coat, so I can simply wear it when it starts to get cold.



My only concern was that the neckline is "cowl", might not look nice when cut in the middle. But I did it anyway... 

Debuted on my styling raket last Friday for Outbox Media:




I think the cowl effect gave my new coat the slouchy appeal. :-) I actually love it, and was even approved by fashionista friend Pax. :D Yehey! :-)

I'm thinking on what clothing to cut next, hahaha! ;p
Till my next DIY! ;)
