2 for 1s are my favorite

Hello everyone! When I found this set I loved the pattern and the material was so soft! It was new with tags but because it was from a thrift store I still wanted to wash it before I used it. Which normally isn't a problem, but this time it took the nice flowy tassel like trim and tied it in tons of knots seen below:(
Hai Archie! 
The trim was a mess and after 30 minutes trying to untangle (I'm a sucker for tassels:( ) I just ended up seam ripping it off. Because the fabric was so soft and the threads so small and fine I knicked a couple and started runs in the fabric:( Fortunately the pattern hides them nicely:) I just did the jacket this time. I took it in starting at the sleeves to make it more form fitting. I used it to dress up a plain tee!
I think it turned out alright:)
He loves being in my pictures!:) If you want to see more step by step photos and instructions as well as more refashions head over to myBlog!
