One of my favorite kind of projects is the kind where you take a boring piece of clothing and give it new life with trimmings or embellishments. These kinds of "re-fashions", as lot of people call them, totally rock because they are quick, easy and usually really cheap.
I picked up this plain, red striped polo for a buck at the thrift store. I added a ruffle trim (using this fabric), a cool measuring tape ribbon to the placket, and some pretty wooden buttons, and I had a whole new look that I love.
Picnic anyone? ;)
