But I'm also sure that all of us who have braved these temples to unwanted stuff have had the following experience...
I bet you know what I'm going to say. It's that time when you see something that is completely perfect... or would be, if only it wasn't a voluminous tent covered with terrible embellishments, awful trim, shoulder pads that reach to the sky, and a cut that makes even dowdy dresses look chic.
|Does this ring a bell?|
|Hard to believe it's the same dress, right?|
For those of you who don't sew, there are even occasional suggestions for quick no-sew substitutes like tape and safety pins (although I personally would recommend fabric glue if you're not going to sew, since it's more permanent).
So go out into the world, my fellow recessionistas, spend a buck, break out the scissors and the sewing machine, and make something sad and old into something new and fabulous!
