I'm starting this blog as a personal record of my thrift store redesigns. If anyone out there is interested or inspired then that is a bonus! What I plan on doing is scanning thrift stores for clothing (or objects) with hidden potential and redoing them to either modernize or completely alter to fit my style. Let's see what happens!

Green dress - $5
This dress is stretch polyester which i have come to learn is not the easy to sew, but! after working magic with the iron i did it!
I shortened the sleeves and bottom both at about 5" with an invisible hem
for the top i use some embroidery thread scrapes i had and made a random crisscross pattern
I love how the top turned out!
And the finished dress! i may take the hem down a tad to help with the proportion since it looks like the top and bottom half are the same length haha! anyways, comments welcome! i plan on wearing it with some brown cowboy boots!
