Fabulous Knithack Alert! Upcycled Platforms Covered in Knit 80s Sweater

Fabulous Knithack Alert! Upcycled Platforms Covered in Knit 80s Sweater

From the maker: This is an upcycled pair of leather platform boots covered in a fun 80’s print sweater vest. There is an inside zipper on them and three hook and eye clasps above the zipper to keep them snug.


They’re size 7 and they’re waiting for you at Detroit Vintage… if these were mine, I’d definitely add some gems … in homage to great Leslie Hall of course!

What else can we cover in vintage sweater vests (and gems)?
