Remember this peach of a dress I bought from a jumble sale a couple of weeks ago? I've pimped it up to get it worthy of taking to this year's Glastonbury Festival.
What did I do? Firstly I chopped six inches of the hemline and restitched it.
|1960's beach dress (Jumble sale 20p), Vintage Ravel of Bond Street silver platforms (Cancer Research charity shop £4.50), Lilac 60 denier opaques (Dorothy Perkins bargain bin 99p), Jewellery (see yesterday)|
Then I removed the plastic stalks and centres from some artificial flowers and handstitched the petals on to the shoulder straps adding a vintage button from my stash to the centre of each.
Much more fun, don't you think?
Here's what I got from Saturday morning's jumble sale:
More ghastly children for my Wall of Misery. These are labelled "2 shillings" on the back of each. So much for inflation, I paid 10p for the pair.
A vintage waste paper bin featuring prehistoric-style cave art filled with a bag of fake flowers, perfect for more projects, like my festival headband below.
A very reasonable 20p for the lot.
A 1930's era raspberry satin cushion currently taking pride of place on our bed (20p)
A juicy bundle of colourful old clothes all at 20p an item, here's just a few.
