AH yes, recons. I don't know why I've been gone so long. I've had a few pieces that I didn't want to get rid of due to their awesomeness potential. One was a cardigan about 6 sizes too big, but it was too soft.... just tooo SOFT!!!! so, I sized it down, and redid the sleeves to make em poofy how I likes em. The second one a Calvin Klein with a Parsley (yes the garnish) pattern that I found for a dollar. There was a seller on one of the craft fair video specials on threadbanger, and she cut off the sleeves and made ruffles with em... what a great idea right?







Thanks for looking!

Oh I know that feeling. It doesn't fit, but it just feels reeeeeeally nice.

Good on you for making clothes that you clearly love out of thrifted goodies.  Grin

I love the second one! It is so cute and sexy. On the 1st one, IMHO, you should make it more fitted, or wear it with a wide belt. It seems too old for you. You're so cute and have a great figure, work it! Wink
