The second project on my craft list isn’t exactly something that I’ve been putting off making, but something I’ve put off wearing.
Sorry about the pictures, I still haven’t figured out how to successfully photograph black colored clothes and such. I got this vest thing at the Black Friday Bag Sale at Epic Thrift (see Bagging It on Black Friday). Over nine months later and I still hadn’t worn it because it didn’t quite work for me as is. Just needed a little work.
So here’s the before…
…and after. Much better right?
First I chopped off the ruffles and the waist tie thing and then cut off a few inches. I then carefully re-attached the tie along the new hem. It hits me slightly below the bust which is much more flattering on me. Then I cut two pieces from the ruffle and attached them to the arm holes to give them a slight flutter sleeve look.
So much cuter this way and easier to wear. I actually wore it yesterday over a black tank top with one of my plaid skirts (see Plaid and Crochet for Dummies).
Here’s the updated list:
Two down, just four to go. If things go well, I’ll have the next project up by Saturday. I may need to make a few trips to some craft stores first, and I may show off some of the goodies either tomorrow or Friday. Look forward to it.
