What I'm GOING to Wear Wednesday

Pin It!

I found the prettiest little
Ann Taylor sweater
at my thrift store (D.I.)
for $4!

I couldn't find anything wrong with it, 
except a TINY spot on the front. 

The sweater is a light blue-green color.
I really like a soft peachy-pink (almost nude)
color paired with it, 
so I decided to embellish the sweater
with some peachy feminine touches.

(This also covered up the little spot.)

 Here's the sweater & a scarf I got free with some perfume
way back in college!

 I cut a 2 inch strip off the end of the scarf & sewed 
a line on the largest stitch on my sewing machine.
The fabric is so thin that it gathered all by itself as I sewed.

I used the gathered strip to make a vertical ruffle along
the front of the sweater. (This was done on the 
sewing machine.)

Then I twirled some fabric around in circles--hand sewing
every so often to make the little flowers (which cover the stain).
I hand sewed the flowers on the sweater. 

I LOVE it with this awesome top I 
got from Forever 21.

Can't wait to wear it!

Remember, there are so many treasures that you can
get for a song at your thrift store. 
With a little bit of love & creativity,
you can turn an article of clothing into something all your own.
