In the midst of all the sewing thats been going on around here lately, I've been trying to squeeze in at least one project a week that is for me (or the house, a friend, ect). I have a ginormous pile of clothes that i've thrifted that could use some sewing magic, pillows that are in need of new covers.. and the list goes on. Those are the projects where I feel like I can unwind at the machine (it doesn't have to be as perfect as the dress I know someone ELSE will be wearing).
This was just a VERY large and old lace top I found at a thrift store for a $1. I took in the sides, took in the sleeves and also shortened the sleeves. It took less than 10 minutes. And now I love it.
Every time I wear it atleast one stranger has asked where I got it.. Nice!
Hope this inspires someone to make something awesome out of something that was previously unwearable.
huge sidenote: I am in absolute awe of the response to the dresses. Whether you bought one or told your friends about it or gave me a compliment on them, I appreciate it more than I could ever express on here. I am still up in the clouds!
