Little Black Shirt

I have no occasion for this little black dress, but I could always use another fall top.



With a few nips and tucks I was ready to go!

Tie-Dye Top

I always think these little strapless, shirred dresses are so cute, but I never wear them since it means wearing a strapless bra too. So this one is getting flipped upside down and turned into a batwing-esque blouse with the shirred part as the waistband.

Tie-Dye Top - Before

I cut off the top half of the shirred portion since it was all stretched out. Then I cut slits at the bottom of the skirt that will become my new arm holes. Finally, I sewed the front and back bottom hems of the dress together to form the shoulder seams, leaving a hole for my head, obviously.

Tie-Dye Top - Before & After

Scarf saved from the bin

Scarf which accidentally got burn holes. In the age BSR* it would have been thrown in the bin, but I decided that I could mend it.


I cut off the section with the burn holes og sewed the to parts of the scarf back together using a french seam, so there are no visible raw edges.
It took only 5 minutes and now the scarf is back in use.

One Out Of Two Aint Bad

Both of the shirts had holes in the front and were tossed into my refashion pile. I replace the front of the striped shirt with the back of the blue shirt. I messed the placket part up so I had to make do (which I ended up with the biased ribbing that stretched out too much).  

SHIRT #2


combined shirts with a funky looking placket. : (
 This will be a shirt that I will wear around the house.

Wedding Guest Dress Refashion

I am attending a lot of weddings this year and I wanted something fun and sparkly.
I found this dress and I loved the blue color and the sparkle on the top. I would have purchased this dress just for the sparkle! There was a little too much material here for my short frame so I decided to use the lining of this dress for the top and the sparkle for a removable belt. 
you can check out the step by step process here.
Happy Sewing!
