"Denim Days; Miss Green Jeans"

Hello Refashion Co-op. I should have titled this post "A Green Mistake" because I made a disaster of a shirt. I decided to focus on the jeans since they turned out OK.

These thick green stretchy jeans would be great for cool fall temperatures.  If they were not so baggy and long.

I did some resizing and the green jeans were done. I had plenty of time to make a shirt to go with them. Right?

I wanted to make a shirt using these green and brown shirts as parts.

After an first disaster shirt, I added some simple trim to this white t-shirt and called it a day. Does anyone else create totally messed up clothes?

A Very Yellow Refashion

Oh look what we have here, readers! We have a bright brand new refashion for you!
I found this traditional Mexican style dress a few years ago with the tags still on it! I have been eyeing it but still haven’t had much inspiration for this. It’s cute but it’s pastel colors was not my taste. What to do, what to do?
I decided to dye it yellow. Which made this dress stand out, which I’m not too sure how I feel about it.
I took the bottom layer off to shorten it, but it was still too much yellow!
I then decided to break up the yellow by using this yellow and gray tank top.
I decided to attach the top shoulder ruffle to the tank top and then attach the skirt part to the bottom of the tank top. This will definitely break up this banana yellow dress!
I cut a few inches above the waist elastic so I had some fabric to attach the tank top to.
I’m still thinking of ways to to break up the intense yellow of this dress, when it dawned on me! I can use my Brother Scan n Cut to add a vinyl decal onto the dress. I found a pretty clip art picture of a bird, printed it, scanned it and cut the design out on gray vinyl! I ironed that onto the bottom of my skirt.
I then pinned the top ruffle onto the top of the tank top and stitched that on. Once that was done I sewed thee bottom skirt onto the tank top to make it a dress!
I’m happy with how it turned out despite it being very yellow. I like yellow, but it was a lot all together!
Happy Refashioning!!!

Denim Days; The Denim Suit Jacket

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I am still deep in my denim binge. Cooler weather means wearing jeans to me. I have had this unique jacket for a few years now. It was part of a suit. I couldn't decide what to do with this jacket, so it sat for a long time.

 The jacket was a little big and long on me. I also thought the original big buttons were just a little too big. I replaced the buttons and shortened the sleeves and body of jacket.

The buttons were from my stash of buttons. They don't match each other, but I really liked how they coordinate.

I liked how the jacket turned out. My mother-in-law did too.

Thanks for reading along. For more details and pictures (Including the original suit.) go to I Can Work With That.

Simple T-Shirt Update

Hi readers! Sorry it's been a few weeks since I've posted. I have several fun things to share with you in the weeks to come. Remember, Halloween is coming up! :)

Today I have a quick and simple t-shirt refash to share, that I am SUPER happy with!

I found this nice t-shirt with a fit that was just blah.

I have a Little Mermaid nightgown that I just LOVE! I also love the small keyhole in the front of my nightgown. I figure if my night clothes have such a cute detail, why not add it to some daytime wear?

With my nightgown as a template I traced the outline of the key hole onto some paper to make a pattern.

I then used my paper pattern to cut out the key hole in my t-shirt. Then I stitched up the sides of the key hole. There you have it! Simple t-shirt refash! But it's Oh-So-Cute!

After I stitched the key hole, I put my shirt back on my dress form and pinned the sides in a bit to make the fit a little more feminine. Then I stitched that up!



Happy Refashioning!!!

Aster d'automne

Bonjour, ça faisait un petit moment que je ne vous ai rien présenté mais avec ma tête de linotte j'oublie souvent de faire les photos "avant" alors je ne vous ai pas présenté certains

Cette fois j'ai pensé à faire la photo, la voici : une robe un peu mémérisante

Et voici la transformation en pull :

Comme la robe n'avait pas de manches j'ai puisé dans mon stock de restes de maille noire afin de pouvoir avoir des manches longues .
