The thrift stores in LA are not like the eh-what-the-heck-I'll-buy-it-and-give-it-a-shot-because-it-only-costs-2-bucks-anyway thrift stores of the midwest, oh not even close. This dress was a BARGAIN at $8. I'm getting worn out by the prices around these parts, especially since Target clearance is the same price (without the headache of alterations)! Maybe I should make a trip back and load up on thrift store stuff!
Found this dress at a thrift store near my house and thought it had much potential, but now I'm starting to reconsider.
Sorry, couldn't get the picture to rotate!
I thought I could take the long sleeves and transform them into a cute short ruffled sleeve, but after looking into it, it seems like it might be a bit past my sewing-expertise level. I have a friend who is a whiz at sewing out here, maybe I'll see what she thinks....to be continued.
