revamping a thrift-store find

I do love a good thrift store find, and occasionally have a creative vision for a lifeless clothing item. Such was the case for this size 18 top I found buried in the skirt section.

For a few bucks spent on ribbon, I made the top a better fit and added some color. (And all without a sewing machine!) I also shortened the straps by moving the buttons higher on the strap (hidden behind the front flap).

Here’s the finished product!

  1. Wow! Talk about being impressed – you did a great job on it. Looks great! Love you!

  2. Hi Bethany! Just stopping by from iCandy handmade. Got your comment about the slip you made, and would love to see pics/even post your version, if you would like. Let me know!
