But since the gray winter skies tend to get me down, I'm going to try to fight against them this year by wearing cute clothes most days and participate in What I Wore Wednesday over at the Pleated Poppy. AND since I'm on a spending budget of $0, I'm going to remake the clothes I already have (with occasional thrift store finds, can't rule that out even with a budget of $0, it's bound to happen).
I give you my first Pinterest Inspired Re-Fashion:
Bear in mind, I was working with what I had so I changed up the colors a bit and added boots... since I can't go outside in stocking feet!!!!!
I started with a black sweater from the bottom of my closet. It had actually been on the wire shelf so long I tossed it into the dryer on fluff to get the shelf's impressions out of it!
After a little trial and error, I settled on applying the lace with liquid stitch, the kind that you iron in place... because I had it on hand. I did stitch down the ends and may go back and hand stitch now that it is in the right spot. I also added buttons down the middle (don't show up in pic) that all coordinate but are different just for fun. I left off the bows ontop of the lace, that was a little too much for me.
I crocheted a quick infinity scarf, took a few inches off a hand-me-down skirt and since it had red in it, added red tights and boots.
Oh, and red glasses!
I've pinned quite a few more outfits I plan to refashion, I hope you'll come back and check them out!
Peace be with you,
