second try...

i found these today at a nearby for-profit thrift shop. there were LOTS of ethnic tunics with matching harem-y pants. i'll have to go back on discount day (thursdays)!
homemade silk shantung
homemade cotton print (love the fabric!)

i realized after the fact that sleeveless dresses provides significantly less material to work with, so these outfits are not ideal...and dress three wouldn't even zip all the way up in the back! i'll make another foray for fashion later today!
delightfully hideous scratchy two layer fabric--also homemade

So much potential!

Found a great refashionista item this morning. The print is incredible. What's not to like about topo maps of Trinidad and the Caribbean! However the outfit begs to be redone! Does anyone want this for their challenge? Or must I do this one myself?

this year's challenge! 

head on out to the nearest thrift shop!

our day-after-thanksgiving challenge has been inspired by the refashionista blog (see rss feed at right)

the idea is that each participant searches for an item of clothing to be re-fashioned into something fun, fitting, and fashionable!  we haven't worked all the details out yet (like, how to swap the items--anonymously?  draw names?)

some suggestions for the clothing:  buy LARGE.  this gives you extra material to work with for maximum innovation.

post your other suggestions here!

i've got three very interesting dresses waiting already....
