Thrifty Thursday - Christmas Bell (Sleeves)

Thrifty Thursday - Christmas Bell (Sleeves)

When I saw this lovely gem at my favorite Austin thrift store, Texas Thrift, I knew I would make something Christmas-y with it!

I decided right away to cut off the bottom part and make a tunic. Luckily, this was super easy and I didn't even have to hem it again because it was attached underneath!

The top part fit perfectly as a tunic, so I didn't even have to change anything there!  I could have left it as a simple tunic then, but I really wanted to do something fun with the bottom part I had cut off - the tucked detailing was so cute!  So, I cut it in half and used each half to sew a bell sleeve onto each sleeve.

I think I'll be wearing this to some holiday parties!  I'm pretty sure I'll also wear it to my Family Feud audition on Sunday.  I'm bringing a "Before" pic with me!  Wish us luck - I've wanted to be on that show forever!!!
