Rockin' 80's Refash

Last week the hubby took me to see my most favorite rock band: Foreigner!!! O-M-G I can't begin to tell you guys how happy I was! I LOVE every single one of their songs!
This lovely vest shirt was given to me by our roomie, who actually move out and is not a roomie anymore :(
I began by turning it inside out and putting it on my dress form: Sally.
I took the sides in a bit, about 1 inch. I stitched the sides up and that was it! Shirt: done!
Now for this next part...don't judge me!
This is something I usually frown upon....Undergarments as OUTERgarments. But seeing that this was a rock concert I made an exception.
But this undergarment will not do all by it's self! It needed some pizzazz!
I picked up some sticky rhinestones and sheet of rhinestones and stuck that on to add some pizzazz! Ohhh Yeah!
Foreigner was SO AMAZING!!! I was so happy I finally got to see them in concert! Plus I made a rockin' outfit!
I also made these cut off shorts a few years ago! Bonus! I think they really completed my outfit! (I had to take my after picture after the show due to the horrible downpour of rain during the show).

Happy Refashioning!!!
