Silk is wonderful fabric, perfect for tops, blouses and shirts, that means all clothes which we wear close to the body. I read somewhere that silk has even health properties. That's great news :-) you can look beautiful and treat yourself.
To this refashion I used men's silk shirt with embossed pattern and beautiful buttons.
I didn't change whole shirt. I left those buttons. I couldn't discard them as they were really beautiful, from ivory as I see, I decided they will look perfectly at the back of the top.
Hello Refashion Co-op. This refashion project might seem out of season right now. My daughter found this amazing dress in the Spring. It is a pink floral masterpiece of 80's style.
Look at the dropped waist and huge baggy fit, with giant shoulders of course.
It has a sweet built in scarf too. My daughter thought this dress was awesome and it came home from the thrift store with us.
Her plan was to remove the top of the dress and save the skirt. She started this refashion but got busy with summer classes. It sat in the sewing pile all summer until I cleaned up recently and found it. I finished it for her even though it is too cold to wear it right now.
There is a simple elastic waistband at the top and the loose pleats were easy to work with and attach to the elastic. The elastic was white and quite unattractive. I covered it with this navy blue cotton lace. It wasn't really a need but it makes the skirt much cuter.
My kiddo had a difficult time deciding just what she wanted me to create for her Canadian Halloween debut. A trip to the thrift shop and a sort through the racks soon provided the answer in the form of a groovy handknit vest, the perfect base for The Refashioned DIY Rainbow Unicorn Costume:
