Thrift and Shout on the News: Re-Fashioned Clothing

 This morning I did my monthly thrifty news segment. I go on Fox 28's Good Day Columbus (Columbus, Ohio) every 4th Monday to show off my thrift store finds! Every month I do a different topic and this month I showed some clothing that I re-fashioned to make it more modern! 

I turned these leather pants into leather shorts!

 I turned this flower girl dress into a modern ombre sundress by dipping it in dye!

 I turned this green grandma dress into a fresh and girly dress by hemming the bottom and cutting off the sleeves!

 My outfit wasn't really part of this segment but I'll still show you what I wore! My dress is a Laundry by Shelli Segal that I got at Goodwill for $5! There was a 2 holes on the side that I sewed up!

Today I'm linking up with:
