Project Upcycle Day 2 - Sweet Lace Camisole
Yesterday I introduced these little pretties as ingredients for my next project. What will I make out of an old lady-ish white under blouse that I thrifted back when I lived in Lethbridge, Alberta and a pink tie-died shawl? Remember when shawls were a popular accessory? Yeah, it was like a blink on the fashion radar in about 2004. I used to wear this one to work. But now that I'm a stay at home mom and it's completely out of fashion, what could I possibly use it for?

    I know I've gone through the steps rather quickly. But I assume that no one is really going to have this combination of materials at their disposal, so a full on tutorial is never going to work. But if you are a seamstress, then you are more than clever enough to figure it out for yourself using the pictures.
