I saw this tablecloth at my thrift store and went nuts... I don't mean I liked it, I mean I went nuts. I don't know why, but there was just something about it - I HAD to make myself a frock out of it. So, here's what happened: I cut a center hole in the round tablecloth, and picked out things I wanted to use with it... A grey lace-trimmed tank, a pink tank and a pale pink T-shirt.
I decided to use the grey tank for the top, so I added a few appliques from the leftover piece of the tablecloth to tie it in more, and cut off the bottom of it...
I sewed the top to the bottom, using a stretch seam binding lace...
I cut the bottom few inches off of the pink tank and hemmed it to use as a waistband... when I looked at my work, I knew it needed something else special... so, I cut off the eyelet from a dust ruffle I recently scored at the same thrift store, and added it to the bottom! Now we're getting somewhere! :)
OK, you know how I can't ever just leave a project when it could be finished... I always think it needs something else... something to make it WOW... I looked around my stash, and sat and thought... Oooooo, that antique lace doily!!! Yup, that's the ticket! I cut it in half, and sewed it to the very bottom strip from the pale pink T-shirt... and added some long grosgrain ribbon in grey and white... now it can be a hair wrap, waist wrap, shoulder wrap, etc.!! :) TA DA!!
Thanks for reading, and hope you enjoyed it!! Maybe get some ideas, or inspiration?
See you next time! :)
