a) find a ratty heavy metal shirt for a white trash party (fail)
b) find a discarded pedistal table that I may refinish and display proudly in my entry way (fail)
What I did find was 1 gorgeous wool coat, 1 dress, 3 tops and a scarf. The coat and scarf I will leave be... the rest will need a little love and care at the sewing machine...
And here I present my first thrift store refashion:
As you can see the lining leaves a little too much to the imagination, so I took the flimsy sash meant to tie around the waist; took it apart and used it to extend the lining by about six inches. I also took about six inches off of the sleeves and added a belt from my wardrobe... Voila!
A whole new look!
Perfect for a night out on the town!
