Last Saturday our neighborhood ASG group met in a new-old location. 8 years ago (approximately) we used to meet at the Eleanor Freed Library on Montrose. Then the funding cuts made the library close on Saturdays so we moved around a bit.
I volunteered to do the program because our location is in the middle of my prime shopping grounds. There are some really good thrift stores in the area I love shopping in thrift stores. It's kind of like hunting for treasure. Plus, I can actually buy several items without spending too much money.
My program was showing off some of my thrift store finds that I upcycled. These pictures are of jackets and robe that were way too small for me. The fabrics were lovely. I removed the sleeves and used the fabric to add inserts to the side seams. Voila, clothes that fit me!
I added fabric from the sleeves of a jacket and inserted it into the side seams to make this black vest.
