Revamping for Spring

I’ve been busy updating a very tired wardrobe with thrift finds (budget, budget!) and this is my newest completed project. I found this adorable peachy-pink cotton blouse that was brand new for just $2! I altered the sleeves (they were too tight at the opening and at an unflattering length) by creating a cap sleeve with vintage tatted lace. And then I sewed, laboriously by hand!, the vintage hand-tatted trim.

Now, if it would just warm up so I can wear it!
