Make Do And Mend

Stripes

This stripey top i got for £5 as one of the buttons was missing and it became my first ‘Make Do and Mend’ project.

I didn’t like the mishmash-ed button selection anyway so i removed them all and added my own white mother of pear ones for a classier feel.

Then i hacked of the bottom of the sleeves to get rid of the ‘detailing’ and made it into a 3/4 length with a loop and button detailing to hold up the rolled edge using the cut off’s.

Make Do and Mend

Been inspired by thriftier times and have started doing more alterations, either buying new pieces and altering them to suit my tastes or revamping something old into something new.

Images of successes and failures to follow 🙂
