Peplum Sweater Updated

After getting feedback from an artist friend, who has a lot of clothing design expertise, I decided to update the collar of the grey peplum (repurposed, recycled, reconstructed, upcycled, redesigned, tweaked, used) sweater that I showed last week. We both agreed that the collar needed the same brown lace that also lines the triangles of the peplum. It looks much better. Above is the updated sweater, and below is what it looked like last week. Looks more finished now. I'm happy.

Sweater description: Grey wool sweater, zippered front. This sweater has been enhanced with a peplum made from parts of a different sweater and accented with antique lace trim. Size Petite Medium. (A peplum is a short overskirt or ruffle attached at the waistline.)
