dainty trims...

The sun is shining gloriously here today, aaahhh it's sure nice to thaw out a little...

My creative space has been bamboozled with loads of other things the last couple of weeks.  Today though, I am enjoying riffling through my tins looking for pretty trims to re-vamp a couple of gorgeous school tunics. 
I love a tunic.  They belong to two very sweet girls who have had a recent school uniform upgrade, however, they too love the old grey tunic & would like to be able to keep wearing them, so I'm going to try my best at a little re purposing love & make them perfectly wearable every other day! 
The possibilities are endless really, buttons, ric-rac, vintage lace, crocheted trims, my head is in a spin...

Enjoy some more creative spaces over here...


  1. Hi Mel..I was just thinking that the lace reminds me of the seventies..when I was a teenager and it was very fashionable to put that lace on muslin or calico to make tops and maxi dresses! The grey tunics are cute..not like the ones kids used to wool I think..though if you didn't have to wear them at school they could look pretty hot too probably.

  2. I like where you're going with this! I have been thinking about what I could do to dress up some of my plainer items in my wardrobe using similar delightful additives!

  3. That's such a great idea. I love how tunics are totally in fashion at the moment!

  4. So many options with grey as the base!! Exciting times, have fun exploring the possibilities :)

  5. That dress is so adorable and with that trim and buttons just over the top...I hope you will show us!

  6. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this. I'm in the process of jazzing up some plain old grey school cardigans - adding lace, changing buttons. Upcycling is so the way forward. x
