At an opening last night I was almost more drawn to a wonderful jacket worn by someone than to the beautiful art on the walls.
I just had to ask where he had acquired it... New York, Paris, Sydney?
“Oh I made this myself. I just bought this tapestry from a Vinnie’s for $5.00 and then I sewed it on the back of this jacket.”
This is a great example of shiftazine thinking.
So go to your nearest charity store or church fete and see what beautiful tapestries or pieces of fabric that will transform a jacket or coat that has lingered in your wardrobe.
