Spider Blouse Reworked

This was my first 'lolita' blouse. It was perfect at the time, but then I realised it was ita lolita.

I think everyone goes through an ita phase when first starting Lolita though :) It's a learning curve! I didn't want my first blouse to go to waste so I decided just change it! I wanted to get rid of the raschel lace and the silly long sleeves.

It was nerve wrecking to cut it up since it was £30 at the time.

Before and After.
It felt good though and it was a nice feeling to know I saved my ita blouse XD
Make do and mend :p

I wore the blouse out at the last Lolita meet with pride! XD








Do you have clothes in your wardrobe your embarrassed about?

You've done a great job! I like it way better with short sleeves :).

Oh, and as for your question, I have lots of items I'm embarrassed about or never worn, hehe.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hug!

Okay lolita meets sound amazing. I think it would be nice to be surrounded by people who share your same interests. This blouse is amazing, I think I have some similar looking ones, but this one is just superb.

AWESOME CHANGE. It looks fabulous. I love it with the short sleeves - way cute.

Thats impressive!! freshened up the blouse! Hmm I have a few clothes that make me wonder why I wore them, but it's all good fun~

Audrey (hkittygirl) said...

I have way too many pieces of clothing I'm ashamed about...Some of them I can still use for dress up ideas, so I never toss them...;~;

suki pooki said...

Oh trust me, there are things in my closet that I've donated or thrown away due to embarrassment!!! (what do you know, there's another donation pick up this week, more room for new clothes!) but I love the idea of vintage shopping! (I've yet to go =( ) one mans garbage is another mans treasure! The blouse you remade was lovely anyways! There was a time when I was huge into anime but never dressed up or cosplayed because I couldn't sew lol

Oops, I missed this post!
You saved it really well! Not so terribly ita, tough!
I have a bronze shirt that I never wear, but it looks good on me, so I never get rid of it!
