Girl disguises wine spillage with more wine
A race-goer who suffered a red wine spill on her white outfit managed to transform her wardrobe disaster into pink tie-dye sensation - by covering it in MORE wine.
Quick-thinking Eleanor Walton, 19, had been at Ripon Races when a rowdy punter bumped into her and spilt red wine over her white jumpsuit. Mortified her outfit was ruined and fearing she'd have to head home, the teenager rushed over to her friend Mia to hatch a plan.
The quick thinking teens nabbed five glasses of wine from the free bar and headed to the loos to dip dye the garment. Eleanor stripped off in the toilet cubicle and soaked her Pretty Little Thing jumpsuit in the sink for 10 minutes.
Eleanor, a bar tender from Leeds, then spent the next 20 minutes under the hand-dryer before returning to the races in her transformed outfit.
Friend Mia Williamson, 18, also a bartender, said: "Our intuition just kicked in."It was a free bar so I said to Eleanor "let's go and get as much red wine as we can and we'll sort it out in the toilet'.
"We got in there and she stripped off in the cubicle while I found a plug for the sink.
"I just poured all the wine in one go and hoped for the best. "We pulled it out the sink and it just happened to turn into this magical, glorious pattern.
"She ended up missing the race she put a bet on though. "Quite a few people were complementing her on the outfit afterwards."It looks like a unique piece."
