Refashion: Clearance Rack

I love the end of season clearance rack. I know, it's always picked over with extra large or small sizes, but I look for fabrics and details that I like and deal with the fit later. For example:

This creamy tank had some beautiful lace detail and was only .33 cents! (Good timing at Old Navy one day.) However, it was an XXL and the snow was flying the day I bought it. I took in the sides and left it long, which is perfect for tall me. It looks pretty layered under cardigans and jackets:

Example number two:

I don't know who could pull off this sun dress, even in the warm weather. It was large and let's face it, not a lot of coverage going on up top there. The bottom of the dress seemed heavy compared to the flimsy top. But, in addition to the clearance price, I loved the detail at the bottom of the skirt and the fullness of it. So sundress, becomes pretty skirt:

Example 3:
Another "i don't know who could pull this off" outfit, this one started as hoodie attached to very short shorts... but for cheap cheap cheap and a little adjusting I have a comfy tunic.
