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.

Positively 60s Refash Part 1

Alright readers! I have a 2 part refash for you! I am super excited about this!!!

Over the summer I found this super duper amazing 60s print shirt with bell sleeves! I must admit this pattern is overwhelming as one piece, but wait til you see what I have done with it!

I removed the sleeves to use for this refash.

I wanted to use the bell sleeves but at them to a much more plain shirt. I also loved the laces sleeves on this white shirt so I took those off and kept them for later.

My first idea was to tie the white shirt together with the crazy pattern on the sleeves. I tried to use an orange fabric marker to color the lace detail on the shirt....that was both time consuming and looked terrible. I decided to cut off all the lace detail.
After my failed coloring attempt I moved onto the next step. I began to pin the sleeves onto the shirt. I turned the shirt inside out as well as the sleeves.

DSCN1877Once the sleeves were sewn in place I took in the sides a bit and added orange rick-rack around the neckline as well as down the front to make a faux warp look, just like the original lace.

I think the rick-rack tied in with the whole 60's vibe of the sleeves! I'd call that a happy accident!

Happy Refashioning!!!

A Skirt to Cami Refashion

My first refashion for fall is a skirt to cami remake.  I like to layer camisoles under jackets and sweaters for chilly mornings and then wear it as is when the weather warms up.

This cami started out as a $1 H&M thrift store skirt.  I fell for the pretty rose print against the dramatic black background.

I used Itch to Stich's Crystal Cove Cami pattern for this project.  My favorite feature is the overlapping back.  Isn't it adorable?
