When I went to an estate sale a while back I was lucky enough to pick up a bunch of vintage slips. I put some in my antiques booth and held on to a few to try my hand at altering them.
We have a lot of college kids that shop at Orange Tree Antiques where I have my booth in Orlando. They love shopping the mall for vintage clothes and I have seen a few of them wearing vintage slips with jean jackets.
I started with a vintage slip and thrift store jean jacket
Then cut off the bottom of the slip and jean jacket and added vintage crocheted lace
I made a detachable flower corsage, the tutorial is HERE, I added a couple pieces of lace to shabby it up and used one flower from the trim on the slip bodice in the center of the flower
I have a question that I bet some of you would know. A long time ago I found a bag of the fibers that are hanging from the flower. I have almost used it up and would love to find more.
Does any one know where to find something like this, it is all sorts of different strands, is it used for fiber art or knitting?
I really like this jacket slip combo, do you think there is an age cut off where I can't get by with wearing something like this?
