Stripes; 1 of 2

Hello Refashion Co-op. I liked these navy blue dresses a lot but the stripes were a little big and shapeless. The button-down dress just needed to be something else.

I took the striped dress in a little on each side and it helped so much.

But what about this button-down dress?

At first I made it into a shorter jacket and then I though a vest would be better.

I was really happy with this outfit and I think the vest is a new favorite refashion.

How to Make a long Cardigan


Do you like long sweaters ❔ I love them❗ especially during  windy autumn and cold winter. 
There is no better feeling than warm, fluffy material on your skin when cold wind blows. 
If you have 2 spare sweaters you don't love so much any more you may sew long warm cardigan and fall in love with them again.

The Denim Dress with Wierd Sleeves

Hello Refashion Co-op. I had a great denim dress that was really cute. It was difficult to actually wear. That is what started this refashion.

I liked this dress but when I raised my arms the whole dress came up with it. It also seemed to get stuck in the up position. This made it dangerously short. I tries to remove the sleeves and keep the shoulder straps but that didn't fit well either.

Then I had a strapless dress that I didn't really like. It didn't fit well and I felt only half dressed. So now what?

The dress became a great skirt. I used elastic and made a very gathered waist. It was super comfortable. I went to a car show. I am not really into cars but my 4 year old LOVED it.

This Refash is for the Birds

My newly recent hobby of the year is backyard bird watching. I have become obsessed with watching the birds at my bird feeders. I keep a journal of the many kinds of birds that come to visit.

I inherited this shirt from my mom, who accidentally shrunk it. Lucky me!
I remembered that I had bird appliques, which is now very appropriate due to my new love for birds!
Iron the front of the applique for 30 seconds to tack it down.
Then flip the fabric inside out and iron applique for 50 seconds.

Let cool, it will be HOT!




Happy Refashioning!!!
