Thrift store find.
It was linen.
That's all this really had going for it.
My husband helped me out with my "before" pics right before I headed out to work out...
....well, that was a mouthful.
YUCK! This linen sits weird. This linen looks weird. It's just YUCK!
It needed a good snip, so that's what I gave it!
I cut it right above the pockets.
I cut the sleeves to a 3/4 sleeve length too.
That's really all I did. Then I washed it.......
After I washed it, the jacket frayed at the edges from where I gave it a snip.
I LOVED it!!!!
I decided I wanted to change the color of my new jacket somehow.
But, how? What dye should I use? What color will be nice?
There were so many decisions to consider.
I decided that the jacket screamed to be a light wash denim look.
GRAB THE BLEACH!!!!
Ok...It wasnt the light wash denim look....but...
Low and behold it sorta turned ORANGEY!!! I love it even MORE!!!
I sewed a straight stitch above each of the places I snipped so that the fray would stop at a certain point. I threw it on and I was ready to wear it over a teal dress to my dear friend's 40th birthday party!
It's Party Time!
Happy Birthday Tara!
Who eats rock candy at a winery? I DO!!!
I love these photo props!
Such a beautiful party!
See you next time!
