Day five of the Wear No Black Week challenge hosted by Urban Darling.
I started the day in denim and this brown ruffle detailed top. I spilled something on the front of the shirt causing a grease stain. I went in to the kitchen at work and attempted to get the stain out by putting a little water and soap on the spot. Within a few moments there was a wet spot (basically, the size of the lower half of the shirt). Thankfully the black hole known as my trunk had a spare shirt, a tie-dyed shirt, so I decided to go a little more casual than normal rather than wearing a soaking wet shirt.
Last summer a load of white clothes was infiltrated by a black sock and the load was washed on hot. I won't name any names or point any fingers but most of the load was this terrible color, dingy, grey color and a few of the items had big splotches of grey. This top was one of the victims. My sister had plans to tie-dye a few things so I brought along this shirt. I was really pleased when we untied the shirt and looked at the pattern and the vibrancy of the colors.
Have you done any refashions on items that were damaged in a wash-load gone wrong?
