The look for less...



The first image is the bethesda jersey tee from anthropologie.

Recently I made a pledge to refashion, renovate, and recycle preloved clothing.

The second image is my look for less. Much less.
My sister-in-law was giving the t-shirts away. They were brand new. The only issue was the text on the front which read:
If My Hose Is Kinked All I'm Going To Do Is Dribble.
So scissors in hand, I cut the text away. Look what I found.
Materials:
two t-shirts large .00
vintage ribbon .35
cost .35

In the Revival Anthropologie catalog this tee sells for $48.oo plus tax. Woo-hoo. I'm having fun.

Geeze! You did a beautiful job! Call it, 'what I only dream about doing but never get around to.' I think I am afraid to completely ruin things. Lame, I know.
Thank you for the inspiration!
