|Shirt and gauchos: Ebay. Belt: Target. Earrings: Forbidden Charm|
|There's only one Hank Ferguson!|
I bought the shirt in question for myself a few years ago, and it was another grubby-but-cheap purchase. It had vinyl horse head appliques on the front and back, which were a little stiff, but presentable.
Anyway, the shirt was so dirty, I had no choice but to have it dry cleaned. The fabric came up fine, but the vinyl appliques completely cracked and fell off. It looked terrible. I didn't know what to do with it, so I gave it to Michelle because I knew if anyone could save it, she could. Michelle chain-stitched new horses onto the shirt by hand, and added claw-set rhinestones too. Now that's dedication!
Hats off to you, Michelle... And here's to rescuing vintage treasures!
