Liz Clairborne

Yes, this was originally a Liz Clairborne creation.... it's amazing how fashion changes! When I saw this dress, I immediately loved the buttons- but the rest of it reminded me of a politician's dress from way back when.

Here's a close up of the buttons:

Huge shoulder pads, sleeves, and knee length....yikes. But I had an idea about what to make it into. I have a dress that's sleeveless with a rounded collar, so I used it as a template for this one. Final product...

No longer a senator's outfit! The sleeves were cut off to form the dress into a racerback kind of top. After shortening it, I thought it was a great professional attire outfit.

Total cost: $2
