Junk From My Closet

A couple of weeks ago my daughter told me about this website how a 27 year old girl is doing a new dress a day with old dresses she finds at thrift stores and yard sales and has a blog called 365 days,365 items of clothing for 365 dollars, http://www.newdressaday.com/ So a look through my closet I found this blouse I haven't worn for years, it was dingy yellow and the facings from the button front always hung open. I decided to redo it. Firts I cut off the sleeves, sewn down those pesty facings and cut it a v-neck and doubled it over and sewn it down. I was thinking of dyeing it as that is what the girl from the blog does but a soak in oxy clean made it white again. This is a before picture.....

And here is the after......

Close up of the buttons and the front fabric.

Now to my surprise my daughter has asked me for one of my sewing machines cause she is going to give it a try!


  1. What a great transformation. Weldone!


  2. Ohmigosh, I can't believe it is the same blouse! Well done!!!
