I found these sweaters at a local thrift store. One for .99 and the other for 1.98, a bargain.
,This was an all lace, 1970's "mini" dress that I think I remember my mom wearing with her blond "fall". Do they even use those words any more? "Fall"? "Mini"?
I cut them up, added the lace dress pieces to the sleeves and collar, top stitched on ribbon, a doily, a bow and crocheted flowers from Glam Ma.
The bummer is I made it to fit Material Girl and she just told me, "It's cute but it's just not my kind of style."
We're teaching a class called "Recycle, Revamp, Reuse "The Sweater", this month at Life Through Art Workshops.
They're very easy to destruct and reconstruct. Stop on by and create one for yourself, but make sure it fits YOU!
