ruffle hem dress from men's shirt

 





To sew this dress I used men's shirt and a sheet. The sheet was needed to make the dress wearable as shirt was quite small and I didn't have enough fabric to make it enough long. Too short dresses and skirts look lovely on photos but you will not wear them in real life , it's important for me that all my handmade clothes are comfy and wearable.

End of Season Nautical Refash

 Hey folks!

For me, it’s always hard to say goodbye to summer. So, when my mom gave me this nautical inspired shirt it made the summer live on!

First of all, I took in the sides to make this more fitted.

I opened up the shoulder seam and sewed back the raw edges.

To add a little flair I added these silver buttons!

Happy Refashioning!!!

The Ruffly Denim Dress

 Hello Refashion Co-op. We are in those warm days at the beginning of fall that are too hot for boots and sweaters where I live. I made a nice transition piece from this denim dress with a big off-the-shoulder ruffle. It was supposed to be off-my-shoulders. It would not stay put, any slight movement on my part and that dress would ride up and suddenly be A LOT shorter. Awkward!

I removed the shoulder ruffle and made the dress into a skirt. I used the decorative elastic as the waistband. It matched and it was right in my hands. Very easy!

The elastic had wonderful fall colors and made this skirt even more perfect for this time of year.

Matching Set From Sweatpants

 




My inspiration to sew this matching set  was beautiful bollywood star  Janhvi Kapoor,her set was orange but well I thrifted only black sweatpants , couldn't find orange one. It was one of my easiest refashions as this fabric , cotton with elastan, is super easy to work with. 
I definitely recommend it for beginners .
