Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘pattern

As stated in a previous post, when thrifing I don’t let larger sizes deter me from making a purchase because it can always be altered.  This red and white polka dot top was a size 2X that I cut down using another shirt as a guide.  I paired it with black and white polka dot capris also thrifted from Goodwill.

2x large shirt thrifted from Goodwill for $3.75

Folded the shirt in half

Used another shirt as a pattern for re-sizing

Cut out leaving enough fabric to stitch

Belted to cinch the waist a bit more

Red and White Polka Dots paired with Black and White Polka Dot Capri Pants // Sandals – Mossimo via Target

Will not be opening the pool this month!
