I have a few blouses from Zara, all the same model, but in different colours.
When I find an item that fits well and I like it a lot, then I try to buy more than one piece.
This particular top has a V-neck, no sleeves and it is draped in front. I have it in white, black, grey, red, beige, light blue, blue... (it also covers some problematic areas....)
When my white one got a bit worn, it showed on the neckline. So, instead of throwing it or using it as a duster, I thought why not up-cycle it?
This is what I did:
This is my grey top, just to show you how the neckline was originally.
Using thin satin ribbons I made flowers and placed here and there beads in several sizes and colours. Also, I added a piece of leather lace!
A little closer for details.
It is easy, plain, simple and it totally transformed my top!
I don't like throwing things away. I always try to think of ways to re-use them!
