Some "jeans" I found for two or three dollars.



Ugly dress I will hack into an ugly romper *lol*.  But for real  I wanna pick up on sewing because I need a lot of ish that need to be tailored.  This was three bucks.




I will alter this into a cropped jacket and line it.



An Express shirt.  Fits nice.  Has a small stain on the cuff so I will repurchase that Carbona stain remover for inkstains. 



Will mod and hack this jacket.  But first need to take it to the cleaners because I want to kill the moth larvae and then I will repair it.  Then reline the jacket also because it is damaged.


Will mod and hack this jacket also. There is also some moth damage.  Very minor.


This is an off white twill or khaki jacket that I wanna mod and hack.  I want to dye it some kind of jewel tone color or neon and use a bias tape to contrast it.  I wonder if they (JoAnn's) sell neon dye that is acid based?

I also bought some white pants, black pants (for work), and a couple of work blouses.  I got most of these items for cheap because it was damaged in some capacity and I wanted to use it to practice sewing and alterations/tailoring.  I am armed with books and internet connection so wish me luck.

I started shopping at thrift stores and consignment stores last week  and I am loving it. I have been able to find good deals. I found Lululemon tank tops and pants for yoga at the thrift store for under $10. The lululemon tanks tops retail for $45-70 and the pants for $100. I also found good deals at the consignment stores, 50-70% off retail price.

Only the shorts are thrifted. I bought a pair of jeans and cut them up & my friend designed them for me. If you want anything designed, you can contact her on her website. Tell her what you want and she will let you know if she can do it.  http://www.kyoncatajen.com/



Can you ask your friend what song is on her website? Shazam didn't know, lol
