I firmly believe in re-purposing items and garments are no exception. Today I re-purposed a garment from a mother-of-the-bride dress to a bathing suit cover up for my upcoming trip! Yup you read it right I had an overlay from this very special occasion that I could not part with it was too pretty and hand beaded with real crystals, a drape on one side and a sleeve on the other side so I removed the sleeve and finished the armhole with some of the scalloped edging and added a few beads. Over a red or navy bathing suit it will look great!
Take a look at the picture below and tell me what you think. The crystals are clear and don't show up in the picture....
