Thrifted Silk Outfit to re-fashion

I thrifted this 100% pure silk number over the weekend at an senior centre's fete.  I envision a breezy tank top for me sans the bling... they might become a hair piece or two....

The skirt is also silk but I am not sure what I will do with it as yet... I think a dress up for Anya will be the end result.  It has full pleats on the bottom too.  What a find... for $10 I can have a go and I won't be too sad if it doesn't work out.  The weaving would look cool on a clutch actually!  These are the styles in my head for a top!  The back of the top has press studs down it.

Love!! Can't wait to see it finished. Would you keep a bit of bling on the pocket? That'd be cool.

Maybe! It might look weird if I take that strip off!

I thought the same thing you MUST use the woven waistband for a clutch.

Love that top from Anthropology. Looks simple enough to make something like that. You've inspired me! Will look at my local op shops with fresh eyes.

And I agree. Woven waistband is just screaming clutch purse!
