Sewing, Refashioning, Repurposing & Thrifting Through Life

The Design is in the Detail

on June 8, 2014

Sometimes you stumble upon something that looks quite simple…until you put it on. Like this tank/cardi set. When I saw it at the thrift store it caught my attention because of its crisp elegance. It was brand new and looked well made.

Today was the first time I wore it and I was pleasantly surprised. This simple twinset looks so much better on me than it did on the hanger.

Hook & eye closures all the way up the front.

It paired perfectly with a white thrifted skirt. Love the fact that it has 3/4 sleeves. Was great for a day like today as it has cooled down considerably from yesterday.

Soft, lightweight, classic in design.

What I really wanted to point out though was how the small details can really make an otherwise boring set.

Beautiful black floral stitching.

Happy Sunday! It’s raining today which is a bummer because I cut up a few tshirts the other day to make into “workout” tops. I don’t workout per se, but I’ve started riding my bike again and wanted some tank tops to use for cycling. I’ll post those tomorrow.
