A Poppy Refashion

I have been hanging onto this over-sized tank top for a few years now, I am embarrassed to say. Today is the day this tank gets a makeover!

Love the poppy flowers on this!

Remember this from my Positively 60's Refashion Part 1?
Remember how I loved those lace sleeves, good thing I kept them!

I started by shortening the straps.

I am going to add these sleeves to my poppy tank top! Hooray!

I pinned the sleeves inside out onto the inside out tank top.

DSCN1900Once the sleeves were sewn on it was time to take in the top at the sides.

Don't mind this adorable photobommer!

Happy Refashioning!!!

Posetively 60's Refash Part 2

We've made it to Part 2!!! I hope you enjoyed part 1 as much as I did!
Remember this before picture?!?

I cut off the sleeves and used them for part 1. But what happened to the body of this shirt? Too cute to throw away!

I pinned a new seam around the arm holes.

Once that was done, I took in the sides a bit.

I had this beautiful metallic pink fabric paint that I used to paint in the pink parts of the pattern! This was a bit time consuming, but fun too!



Since the weather is a bit too cold for a tank top I wore it with a jean jacket!

Happy Refashioning!!!

The Bun Hat

Hello Refashion Co-op. Have you ever wanted to wear a hat and a bun at the same time? There isn't room for a bun in a regular baseball hat. I wanted one off those hats with a hole in the top for a bun.

I marked the top of this hat. 

I cut a circle out of the top of the hat.

I used this bias tape to cover the cut edge.

The hat worked just like I wanted. I had my daughter model the hat for me because it was really difficult to get a clear and closeup picture of the back of my own head.

men's shirt refashion


I bought this shirt 2 years ago , I really liked the color and the fact that it's 100 % good quality cotton.
 At first I thought to resize it but later I abandoned this idea and hid it to wardrobe ... for 2 years๐Ÿ‘€
I discovered the shirt again at the end of summer and found totally new way to refashion it๐Ÿ’ก.

Poncho to Kimono

Hello Refashion Co-op. I had a beautiful poncho with fabulous shades of blue and green. It was really lovely, it was just too big.

I cut the sides out to make a kimono shape. I used my machine to connect the sides. I also cut it down the middle to open it up. I turned the edge under and stitched that down.

When I was done I had a fun kimono style jacket that fit so much better than the poncho.
