I got bleach stains on this brown sweater by leaning over the washer where I'd evidently spilled bleach and didn't know it. I really liked this sweater and had only had a chance to wear it a couple of times. But...being that I only paid about $4 for it, I didn't want to pay more money to buy dye (plus I've never tried dying before and wanted to avoid any other potential disasters that I might incur with that process) so here's what I did. I had this shirt I thrifted for 99 cents. I bought it because I liked the sheer fabric, the sleeves, lace at the neck, and the colors, but it had flaps that went down to my knees and I didn't like the length. So I cut off the flaps and used the excess fabric to make a bow (my first attempt at bow making). However, I had to make a gigantic bow in order to cover the stain. I think I'll end up throwing away the sweater. But I'm thinking I may keep the bow (as big and ridiculous as it is) and see how it would work out attached to a belt or something. This top has strings on it that tie in the back. I may try attaching the bow to the strings and tie it in front instead. For now, it will be an at home outfit only. These pants are old and wrinkled because they've been thrown in the closet and rarely worn. These are another wear at home only item.
Do you have pieces of clothing you don't part with, but don't wear in public?
