Restyle that old/thrift-find jean jacket that’s hanging in your jacket with ribbon or trim! Attach by sewing or fabric glue. It would also look pretty interesting to do this down the back instead, as Kinsey wrote in her original post. Visit her project blog at Sincerely, Kinsey by clicking through the picture.
A very simple do-it-yourself pair of lace shorts! Compared to actually buying a pair, the cost of lace trim and a thrifted pair of shorts (or an old pair that needs some revamping) is relatively cheap. If you have the time and the patience you could even hand sew this yourself instead of using a sewing machine.
