Last month I found this 1940s gray wool skirt suit at an indoor garage sale and haggled the vendor down to $10.00 (from $50.00) because of the condition issues. It was missing one of the crescent appliques and was decently soiled. But for $10.00 a restoration project made sense - so here it is!
First I trimmed about 2 inches off the hem of the skirt (which was stained anyway) for fabric to create the applique.
It's not perfect, but then again neither are the original two - now I just need to send it off to the dry-cleaner and put it in the store!
