Here we go again.

I had two lovely posts, then I freaked out because I didn't want random people reading my blog, so I deleted my posts, then I found out I can make my blog private.  So here I am, starting over.

I will re-post my previous fashion recreations later.  Today I want to focus on something new.

Behold; the giant, pink blouse.


I got this thing for a quarter at a garage sale last Sunday.  I'm not kidding.  I came out of there with nine items for $2.00.  I can't wait to show you the rest!  I chose this blouse because I loved the embroidery.

I tried a few things with this one.  I removed the sleeves and tried making it a tunic, but there was too much fabric bunching up.  Then I took in a few inches on each side, but it was still too long and awkward.  Finally I took a few inches off the bottom and this is what I ended up with.

Try to ignore my face.

I think it turned out pretty well :)


  1. I'm so jealous of all your skills! I used to do this a little in college but never really knew what I was doing.

  2. wow the pink shirt came out great! Oh the God given talent:)
