On one of my usual jaunts to my favorite thrift stores I spotted this dress for $5.00. Ok it is so NOT my style or size. But I was drawn to the pale blue color and noticed it was 100% linen with mother of pearl buttons along the side. Hmmm…this is definitely my decor style…then AHA it hit me. I was in need of new fabric for one of my side chairs. The dress was a plus size and looked to be plenty of fabric and as it turned out it was. Here is a photo of my chair in a dress…. I even used the mother of pearl buttons along the back of the chair. I am so happy with how this turned out.
