Thrift store finds

A couple weeks ago I went to a thrift store.  I bought some things.  I've been repurposing them for Blythe.

My first project was a little mink collar.  I made that into a stole.

Next was a linen dress... that started as a napkin...

I did a "cut as you go" deal and made up the particulars as I went a long (long or short sleeves, collar or not, etc.)  I still need to add buttons. But I'm no seamstress, so I was happy with the results.

Here's a close-up.  

I've sewn the skirt closed in the back and left the bodice to be closed with some buttons (Or I could use snaps)....
