White Sweater Round-up; Part 1

Hello Refashion Co-op. Do you ever end up with a lot of similar items on the refashion rack? I always do but never intentionally. I don't know how it happens.

This is the first of 4 white sweaters. I do not need 4. I wanted to change it up somehow. I already liked the lace panels in the front and the 3/4 length sleeves.

I used some Rit dye. I love this stuff. They don't know me or pay me to say that. I just like to use the dye a lot. Why purple? It was on sale, and I didn't have a purple sweater.

Here is the finished sweater. I dyed a cotton top to go with it. They are perfect for me to wear to work.

The Perennial Shoes

I have a pair of shoes that keeps coming back, year after year!

When I got them, they were white, and I literally loved them to pieces.



I covered them with strips of denim in three shades, which I blogged in an earlier post.

After a year or so, I wasn't really happy with how they were aging, so I removed all the denim and started over with my now even uglier white shoes!

After That

For their third time around, I coated them in fabric from an old tank top (also a previous refashion), which worked even better than I expected. When they were all done, they looked like this:

Because there was tons of fabric left over, I also made a matching headband.

If you'd like to see more of how I made them and how I wore them, head on over to my original blog post!

Happy Spring!

Peignoir d'été

Voici une transformation que je voulais réaliser depuis longtemps ........ avec un panneau de rideau tout en dentelle...

Et après quelques heures de couture, voilà le résultat : un joli peignoir d'été. Je me suis aidé d'un patron de La Maison Victor pour le couper mais j'ai fait des adaptations afin qu'il corresponde à ce que je souhaitais. 

Désormais, je vais pouvoir traîner le matin dans un joli peignoir et pour en savoir plus c'est ici

Comme quoi, rien ne se perd ........

Bisous, Elisa Elisa

An Over-All Disaster

Hello Refashion Co-op. Do you ever start a refashion and create a total mess? That's what I did.

I cut the top off the dress and started making shorts out of the skirt. So far, so good.

I cut out the shorts and they were way too small! I used a pattern but you can see I didn't use it right. 

I added some yellow fabric on the sides to make the shorts bigger. I thought the yellow fabric would be cute. It wasn't.

They are still too tight and it all looks terrible on me. I decided to save the top for later. The shorts are just awful. Things don't always work out, right?

Thanks for reading along, for more details of this disaster go to I Can Work With That.
