Dress refreshing

We all hate it when our favorite item of clothing becomes frayed. Below you'll find an idea of how you can fix the problem and continue to wear your item of clothing.
My lovely red dress showed signs of wearing away.
I had some shoulder pads and I decided to use one of them to cover the fray. But before sewing it on the dress, I thought about decorating it with embroidery.
I used one of the stitches of my sewing machine.
Then, I sew it on my dress.
And the beautiful result of my work

Yellow Sweater Revival

Sometimes the odds are that the washing machine decides what goes out or comes into one's wardrobe. I know that now after years and years of experience. And so it happens that recently it decided about my husband’s sweater, which went out of his wardrobe and proudly became one of the items in my wardrobe.

Check it out.
I did not want to make other drastic changes to it, so I thought about some ribbon in order to make it look better on my body.

I cut the ribbon into two equal pieces and sew them by hand at the back of the sweater.

Here they are tied into a bow

In order to give it a more feminine look, I made a low cut and sewed by the sewing machine the upward hem.

I decided to sew the cleavage hem by hand.
