This started life as size s/xs American Apparel tunic (or dress) that I bought my daughter for school, last year. I thrifted it for less than $10, but it’s not really her style, so it sat, unworn. To make it more Me-Styled, I chopped out the pockets, removed two little belt loops and the sleeves, then used them to make those sweet ruffled cap sleeves!!
I was motivated to, finally, refashion this top when I spotted this contest over on Kollabora.
What can I say, I’m very easily swayed by the use of the word manifesto. I was also interested in getting back to refashioning. I still have quite the stash of thrifted this-could-be-turned-into-something-great articles of clothing. This was a nice, easy, reintroduction.
And it is DEAD comfy to wear on those no tight clothes PLEASE days we sometimes have.
It also looks cracking with leggings, little booties and my kick ass cape (told you I can’t stop wearing it! THANKS for all the cape LOVE, btw!!) that even my husband keeps telling me I look chic in.
That super neat bun ain’t bad, either!
If you’re on Kollabora, give me some love!
