On a recent afternoon of thrifting I came across this vintage blazer. I loved the variety of colors and the price. It was only $1.00. It would look great with jeans. What I didn’t like was the size. It was a six. Way, way, way too small for me. The story of my thrifting life.
I had put it back on the rack, but I was drawn back to these buttons, a pearly purple shade. Three buttons for a dollar…..purchase justified.
I planned on cutting off the buttons and tossing the rest, but the fabric was great quality so I decided to hold on to it. Today I pulled it out and started cutting.
Using the back panel I made a fold-over clutch featuring one of those lovely buttons. I lined it with a purple chambray.
I turned the sleeves into an infinity scarf and made floral embellishments using the remaining buttons.
The scarf is thick and will be perfect when the weather turns cool. I plan on styling it with a solid color t-shirt and denim jacket.
I love my thrifty new accessories and I still have some fabric left!
