The base is a used lime green knitted cardigan with 2 zip closure in very good condition. Optically slimming fit given by the special front construction.

I added the crochet lenght made of colorful vintage inspired lacey blocks with octagonal flower center and black granny square borders, attacked to the base with a lot of buttons in different style, shape and color in rainbow order.

The back is decorated with a rainbow doily with hexagonal flower center, designed by me especially for this upcycled cardigan!

Made of recycled, vintage and new mixed wool and acrylic yarns.

Very retro, with a modern twist.  You did a great job with this.
