Dramatic Jacket

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I used 2 old refashion projects to make a new refashion project. Let me show you what I did.

Mood fabrics posted this pink jacket on Instagram. (They are great to follow for sewing inspirations and free patterns and such.) I thought the jacket was so amazing and fun. I looked at it for a while and I realized I had some pieces I could use to make this jacket for myself. Sort of. 

I started with this jacket that I refashioned last year. It was cropped like the pink jacket. 

I also had this yellow dress that I shortened and shortened last year. I found it at a thrift store and I didn't mind cutting it up for the tulle in the skirt. 

I sewed the tulle to the hem of the jacket and I added some gold trim. Because I love adding trim. 

This was so fun and it only took a little while because I had the parts on hand. Thanks for reading along, for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.

Vintage Dress 2

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I had a few vintage dresses that I wanted to update so that I could wear them out in public for my regular activities. This is the second dress I refashioned. 

Before and after.

This light weight cotton house dress was super comfortable but it wasn't very flattering.

I wanted to make this dress into separates because I loved the colors and the fabric so much, I wanted to be able to wear it as much as possible. 

I hemmed the top so it would not fray.
 
 I also added elastic in the ends of the sleeves.I unpicked a few stitches and threaded the elastic through to make a puffed sleeve.

I used a zigzag stitch to attach the elastic to the skirt. 

I really liked how this turned out. Thanks for reading along, for more details and pictured go to I Can Work With That.
