I don’t know if this technically qualifies as a refashion. It’s more of a fix, or an alteration. Semantics, schemantics.
The point is, it took me literally two-minutes to turn this Ann Taylor wool sweater (thrifted for $2.50) from crazy to plain. And plain is just how I like my clothes.
I’m pretty sure this sweater was brand new. And I’m pretty sure the lady that donated it did so because she thought those bows were as hideous as I did. And I’m also pretty sure you can tell that my daughter took this photo based on the weird angle.
But this sweater is so soft. And those pearl-esque buttons are so cute. And those pockets, well, I’m just totally in love with those pockets.
So I took this baby to the thrify fitting room and took a closer look. And what was standing in the way of taking this sweater down to my plain-jane level of clothing comfort? Three tiny threads per bow.
Thus, with a pair of sharp scissors and a steady hand, the two-minute refashion…fix…alteration…whathaveyou.
So much better.
What do you think? Did you like the crazy bows? Would you have left a few of them on? Or are you a plain-jane gal like me?
Happy refashioning, DIY’ers!
