I found a great linen summer dress at the thrift store.
Since it was plain, I decided to add a crocheted picot edge.
I also had some velvet ribbon that's been hanging around for ages, so I decided to use some of it as trim.
Crocheting edging does take a bit of time. I'm using this as practice for some pillowcases.
Then I made a braided velvet belt from the trim. I can wear it as a belt, necklace or hair tie.
Have you redone a thrifty frock lately?
I purchased my first clothing pattern the other day. I haven't actually sewn a complete garment in years and I'm sure my sewing machine Chuck will get a workout. I'm hoping to complete it this weekend, provided I don't get frustrated and throw it all into a heap. :)
