I started with this Sheri Martin, New York jumpsuit that had lost it’s size label a long time ago. This quirky number was built for the very tall, jump-suit adoring woman… aka not me. (I am actually wearing jeans under it in this photo!)
I knew I wanted to make this into a dress, so the first thing I did was rip out the leg seams so I could put it on my dress form. From there, took in all of the too big parts, made a couple of new seams and shortened it to my desired length. The end result was a dress that I could wear to the office.

Well hello! It's been a while since I have last posted. Deep apologies for that.
My returning refashion has actually sitting for a while on the refashion rack. This was my grandma's shirt/blouse:
My sewing machine was causing some issues while I was at this rather simple refashion, which led me to stray from the initial (simple) plan and improvise (go to my blog if you care for details). However, I managed to finish it somehow. And I kinda like it!
