THE WIN: the top-- LOVE the crochet neckline. But the swingy silhouette was not only wide, but super long (it used to cover my butt) and I just felt very "maternity" in it. So I chopped the length. In turn, a small embroidered bird on the bottom was half chopped off. So I added these floral pieces--cut from a scrap of vintage fabric. I love it!
THE LOSS: the skirt-- remnants of a dress I chopped in half. Unfortunately when I added the elastic it made the once-full/knee length bottom half a dress into a slightly-too-short-and-tight-for-an-almost-30-year-old skirt. I might keep it to wear with tights underneath in the winter. But I definitely changed out of it after these photos were taken!
shirt & skirt: DIY, lacey cardigan: discount store?, bag: vintage, boots: Minnetonka, necklace: vintage
I'm glad the shirt turned out so well--it definitely gives me motivation to keep working through my pile of fixer uppers.
Do you see potential in you un-worn clothes? Or do you immediately toss them and just buy something brand new?
