PDR Round 3

The challenge: take an awful outfit from AG (Oh, there are so many to chose from), and make it into something better. There is a twist: keep 3 elements of the original outfit.
Well, here's what I came up with...
The original: 1996 First Day Outfit
Go ahead and shudder. What was AG thinking? Yes, I know it was 1996, but it was just as ugly then as it is now.
So, here is how I remade it:

Ta-Da! The three elements I kept: black, turquoise, and stripes.
I made the pants and jacket in denim, since anything denim was the trend in the mid-90's. The original pants where knit and the jacket was fleece. It originally had a horizontal striped tee, but I opted for a silky vertical striped tank.
Here's the album with a few more pictures:

The final round is Formal Season, and is due May 1st. I'm glad of that since I am having nasal surgery tomorrow. Hopefully I'll be back to the computer and the sewing machine in a couple of days.

Yay, so much better than the original. I wondered what they were thinking, too. The outfit you created is something the girls could wear in public without feeling like an art class gone wrong.
