How a few new buttons can transform a dull thrift find! Sometimes a few new buttons and a bit of experimenting with accessories is all it needs to transform a boring thrift find. Lucy Housman has given an old granny blouse a new lease of life doing just that. I thought that for this week’s revamp, buttons and accessories would be good to experiment with, or to be more precise, I was wondering just how much buttons and the right accessories could transform a garment. Recently, I found this rather dowdy white blouse. It’s an absolute granny classic, but I am rather loving the little lace around the neck. I am quite shocked at how see-through it is considering that the target market is presumably the over 50s, but on the plus side, the light-weight fabric is ideal for spring and summer and it certainly keeps layering on the agenda.

Plus, loads of buttons on eBay are sold in pretty vintage tins!
