LOOK! What I've been up to! I'm so excited. I've gained so mch weight and all of my clothes are too small, I'm retired which means "budget", so....I am now the FASHION REVAMP CHAMP! Check this out ...................
It all began with a 12 year old skirt that I NEVER wear.
And a bright springy top with stains on the front ... bout to go in the garbage. Goodwill wouldn't want that thing!
I started chopping the skirt off, then chopped the bottom of the shirt off, sewed it together, added some length to the sleeves and guess what?
I'm gonna put this beautful tunic with some black pants and awesome jewelry and wear it to church on Sunday. Praise the Lord!
This began as a mans, long sleeve turtle necek t-shirt. Chop-Chop-Chop! Cut a V-neck, made 3/4 length sleeves, gathered some strips of knit fabric for floweretts, used some left-over buttons for the center, and guess what? That's right, I wore it yesterday to a friends birthday party YAY!
I love ,love this one. Found this at Goodwill store for $4.00. Again. oversized men's shirt with collar and button down with cuffs. Chop-Chop, off went the cuffs, buttons, collar and sleeves. On went vintage trims and lace. Ma-velus Da-ling! Humm... maybe I'll pair this with some black pinstripe slacks and wear this to church on Sunday. Oh my, so much fun, humm.. maybe my sweetie will take me someplace special so I can get all dazzled up in my new duds. I'll let ya know!
Now, this is absolutely my fave -o-rite! Found this shrug tucked way back in the dark side of my closet. Been there forever! Seriously. The matching tank was way too small and too short, and the solid green part of this duo, was another hand-me-down that well, I couldn't really enjoy because it was so HOT! So once again, 'from the dark' side". CHOP CHOP CHOP . I can't wait to wear this. I'm not kidding ya'll, this is soooo much fun. Chopping, and slitting, and pokeing, and just plain, using up some of my fabric stash. I would love to hear some of your revamp stories. Gotta go, SEW! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
