Sometimes you are browsing through clothing racks and spot something with potential. You grab it, hopeful, until you see it is NOT your size. Or, about 3 sizes too big. Your hopes are dashed.
I had a lovely friend bring me a cute shirt with potential that just happened to be about 3 sizes too big for her:
All she said???
"It needs you. Do whatever you want".
There's those words again! Love em.
This shirt sat on my "to be accomplished when inspiration hits" pile for a very long time. Anyone else have one of those?
And when I say a long time. I'm talking a LOONNNGGG time.
FINALLY inspiration hit. In full force.
I sliced and diced and added a wide belt hitting at that perfectly slimming, non-maternity looking spot and a sassy tie in the back and a Vintage Dutch Girl Flower pin to top it all off:
I'll admit, I wanted to keep this one :) But hey, it was fun to give it back to my sweet friend and see her smile!
