New neckline

I have here a plunging polka dot neckline that I'd like to fill in.

I took a scrap from the bottom of the dress and used it to fill in the neckline.

PJ REFASHION: matching skirt and scarf

I found an old pair of Charlie's lounge pants in one of my refashion piles and didn't even question its location. Before my husband could change his mind, a Sharpie marker and a pair of scissors already did their damage to the pants.


I turned the top part of the pants into a cute little skirt, where I just needed to sew front and back seams and work on a new rolled hem. Because I wasn't sure how to stitch close the fly area, I will eventually remove the original button and add new ones.


I completed the infinity scarf even if it took a few extra minutes. And now I have a cute little lounge skirt that I can wear around the house and maybe the corner drugstore. My new infinity scarf is ready to go! Yay!

With some sparkly knit scraps, I turned the boring tight turtleneck to this Festive Sweater:

Copy Katniss

Remember that scarf that Katniss Everdeen wears in the beginning of Catching Fire?  I really liked it so I attempted to make a copy out of this sweater dress.

I zig-zaged an outline and trimmed the rest away.

For the details, come see it on my blog!

Button Down Shirt Remake

This is a quick and easy way to fix a frumpy and boring button down shirt into something cute and trendy!
This shirt is pretty boring. It is a little too big, but overall, not a show stopper. I took the shirt in a bit, turned it around and remade the sleeves. 

And now it is a cute new shirt perfect for fun!

You can check out my step by step process here !

Happy Sewing!
