Default Up Cycling or.....

"Thrifted Transformations"......... I admire creative and talented people who can re-purpose items into new and fabulous things. Matters not if it's taking a thrift shop evening gown and creating a new and exciting dress or working magic on a garage sale find cabinet radio and making it a cool retro bar.

This lady is talented and I like her thrift shop savvy and sewing talents!

The untold want, by life and land ne’er granted,
Now, Voyager, sail thou forth, to seek and find.

"First thing I am going to do is seam rip the dress apart"

Kind of like "To make a rabbit stew first you have to catch a rabbit".

Yea, I don't see either being done much these days.
