Trish made a most gorgeous piece for today's post! I feel like the skirt she used is one that I had in my collection back in the 90s. The one that I used to wear mock turtlenecks with. The one that I used to wear Birkenstocks with. Yeah, I was straight up Reality Bites :) See how this turns out!
I am addicted to your blog, Marisa! Your fabulous creations inspired my sister and me to buy only second-hand for a full year. I found this skirt at Goodwill for $2.50. I knew that it wouldn't fit, but I loved how delicate the 100% silk fabric felt.
Also, I'm a sucker for thrift designer pieces like Bergdorf Goodman...
...so I brought it home and hand washed it!
Check out how Trish transformed it!!
The top layer and waist shrunk, so that the bottom layer hung out about two inches. Although I was scared to sew such slinky silk, I cut in the sides to make sleeves...
...and turned it into this super cute dress.
Trish, your new piece is PERFECT! It turned out so well and you look gorgeous! I love the neckline and the sleeves! The after couldn't look more fantastic and I love how the little bit of blue peeks through the bottom. Can't wait to see the next designer-y piece you score at the GW!!
