chicsteals style. but i also had the benefit of a b oleyar curve thinger my mom bought ages ago for pattern making. i dont have a vcr to watch the "how to" but its pretty self explanatory for refitting. i used the curve that reads "front arm half". in future sewing i may just cut the sleeves off and go from there instead of the whole seam ripping bull shit. but until then, i have a tunic made from my poppa's shirt!
this was one of my first savers purchases...last summer. probably the best thrift store ever-clean, well organized by both size and color, spacious, well lit, and did i mention clean? you dont get that "oh gawd now i have lice and bedbugs and its dark and dingy so i cant really see what im holding right now but it feels like polyester" feeling. anywho. the purchase [among others] was a size 18 target skirt. i assumed i could somehow resize the waistband for wearing.
i made my 2nd savers run last week and introduced some friends to the best thrift store ever. 3 hours later...they are fully converted. and an hour after returning home i already had all my new purchases in the washer, including this oversized sweater
