Dolman Tee

Like this shirt?

Well here's the story...

On Monday, I took about 20 minutes to hurry through the clothes racks at Goodwill.  When I decided to stop in, I had no idea that they were doing a 50% off sale in honor of MLK day! What a nice surprise! Yay for me!

So after sorting through a few racks of clothes and then sorting through my finds in a dressing room, I walked out of the store with 3 shirts.  How much did I pay?
Less than $3 per shirt!
I was thrilled!

All but one of the items needed some work to be wearable, but this was part of my goal.  Before I got into this "refashioning" thing, I had been very diligent to clean out my closet on a regular basis.  And since I don't really shop much anyways, my collection of useful clothes is almost non-existant.  However, I enjoy thrift shopping and this new discovery, that I can take clothes that don't fit and make them into something I like, has opened a whole new world of possibilities to me.

I used this awesome tutorial for the pattern.
I wanted something a little different for the neck line.  So I cut here..
I used this cool tutorial to finish it off.


So keep posted for another Goodwill Refashion!

And I am linking up here!  This blog post doesn't have the links to my pins on pinterest, it instead has the links directly to the blogs they photos were pinned from.  Though if you go check out my boards, you will see the pins!
