Marilyn Makes Any Outfit Look Fabulous!

Marilyn Monrore can make absolutely anything look good. Here she is wearing an outfit made of burlap potato sacks and she looks as captivating as ever.

Back in the early years during world war II, our fore mothers would use feedsacks as fabric and fashion them into clothes. Feedsacks have a whole interesting history of their own.

I found Sharons Antiques on line and they offer a simply fabulous variety of feedsack fabrics. I'm very very tempted to choose one of my vintage patterns over at Glamourstitch and try my hand at this. What would you make?
