So, last week I shared my shopping experience with you as I searched for something to Reinvent for this week’s Fashion Take. As promised, I have something to show you… actually two somethings.
Here is the garment as I found it.
When I come across something to reinvent I usually have a loose idea of what I want to do with the garment, but I am surprised every time at the actual outcome. For this one, I thought for sure I would be using the tan and black fabrics together but as fate would have it, I didn’t touch the tan after I removed it from the bottom half of the skirt.
Here is the top I made from the bottom ruffled part of the skirt.
The second piece of clothing I made was less of a transformation.
I like how I can use the pieces separate or together. The top felt a little formal to me on it’s own. That’s why I first paired it with the high waisted floral skirt and the cute velvet heels. The skirt, by it’s self, is casual and something I could wear every day. I paired it with a vintage floral top and a vintage hat. I’m going to wear this on a picnic once the weather warms up (Come on Spring!).
I think the pieces work best together. This embodies my style.
Hootons, I thank you for your labor of love in taking these photos.
