Here’s something you don’t see every day.
Designer Adrienne Leverette started making sweaters for her infant daughter after cleaning out her own closet.
Leverette explains, “I couldn’t bear to throw away a couple of sweaters that had been accidentally shrunk in the wash, and my daughter didn’t like to wear jackets, so I found a way to keep her warm and make use of some still beautiful wool.” She goes on to describe her newly-discovered passion, “And then I couldn’t stop. I became captivated by the challenge of working with the unique properties of each cast-off garment to create something original, useful and charming. The look I am going for is elegant yet playful—almost hand-drawn.”
Well, these certainly look playful and hand-drawn! You can find these sweet sweaters online at her Etsy store, or you could go to the open trunk show at Queen Bee Creations (3961 N Williams, Ste 101 Portland, OR 97227) on Saturday, November 12, from 12-4 PM!
Thanks for sharing these, Adrienne!
