It is a nice op shop; spacious, easy to manouver around which is especially useful with a stroller and a toddler!, and has background music playing (nothing like a bit of Bob Marley and The Wailers to shop along to). I spotted this top by Lucky Brand with beautiful bird printed fabric:
Usually however, I would have disregarded a top like this, because it is not my size. For $6 I thought it would be worth buying with the intention to alter and make it fit. I found some burgundy bias binding from Vinnies in Cranbourne on Tuesday, which is a good colour to match the Lucky Brand top fabric.
I cut to size using an existing top, then cut the bottom off by about 10cm, finished off the hem with the burgundy bias binding, and cut off the tie blue straps around the middle.
I'm really liking this top for summer, it is very light and cool.
