I'll keep this short. Last March, I had a problem with a green dress that I was attempting to refashion for a St. Patrick's Day outfit. I was not successful. (Sad trombone sound) Luckily, I had something that would be an easy fix for this year.
After trying various pieces of other articles of clothing to cover that hole, I actually went to one of my thrift stores and purchased something just for this. It was now officially an ordeal.
See the full post on my blog Craft, Thrift, or Die along with more tales of woe!
