I went thrifting with a friend last week hoping to pick up some new old t-shirts and other knit items for re-purposing. Well, not only did I land some great knit items, I found this dress. It was $2 so I brought it home. So far everyone has laughed at my show and tell. Granted, they've been mostly family members of the un-crafty variety so it's forgivable. But Mr. Cirque Du Bebe well, he took the mockery to a whole new level...
Disturbed? You should be. Just be glad I cropped off his head and spared you the 'I'm a pretty princess' face. Oh no, that one was not ready for the public. But that'll learn ya for knocking Selma Sack Dress!
So clearly the problem here was not with the dress but the audience. That's why I've brought her here where I know she'll be in good hands. If anyone can see the glorious dress that could be, it will be you lot. So the question is...what would you do with it? The fabric is a knit and the little buttons are wooden. I'm seeing a high waisted, sleeveless dress with wedges. I'm open to suggestions. What do you see? Please don't say a sack.
Thrifting is just so bloody great isn't it? Sometimes a hit, sometimes a miss but when it delivers I'm on a thrifters high for days. I think I hit the bonanza on this outing, scoring these knit tops, some men's, some women's, with different weights and textures but all perfect for re-fashions. The geometric fabric is a hoodie and I almost didn't buy it. Something about feeling naughty buying a perfectly wearable hoodie to cut up. Then again it was at the thrift shop because somebody didn't want it. That's like feeling guilty for rescuing a kitty from the pound. Silly!
