My thrift store shopping habits have changed since I started refashioning. Instead of shopping based on cut and fit, I now shop based on pattern.
A while ago I found this shirt, and I LOVED the colors and the pattern.
|Aqua, black & white and zig zags. What's not to love?|
After I got it home and tried it on, I realized that it was too much of a good thing. The sleeves, in particular were just too much. And the cuff that gave them some puff made me feel like Jerry Seinfeld in the puffy shirt episode.
|I felt like a pirate clown wearing it!|
|This dress will probably show up in a few future refashions. There's just that much fabric in it!|
|It looks so much better now!|
