I Made A Jumpsuit

Hello Refashion Co-op. I turned this maxi-dress into a jumpsuit. And it was so easy!

 The dress fit well in the body so I just needed to cut the legs. It looked like the crotch was too low but when I added an elastic waistband it turned out perfect.

Comic Book T-shirt 3

Hello Refashion Co-op. I have been on a t-shirt refashion binge lately. This Captain Marvel shirt turned out to be my favorite.

This shirt was a men's size and was really big on me. That's OK. I cut out a simple sleeveless style shirt in my size. I used a shirt that fit well as a size guide. I made some extra room at the bottom for my hips. That helped the fit because this shirt didn't have any stretch.

I cut a narrow strip of fabric from the shirt scraps. I tied the shoulders to make them more gathered and narrow. It made a more interesting neckline.

Beach Glass Dye Dress

I got an email from Rit Dye with 3 new color blends for summer! I was very anxious to try 2 of the 3 colors. This color combo is called Bach Glass!
I had this PERFECT white cotton dress for this project!

1 st rinse the garment in HOT water.
The Beach Glass Recipe is:
1/2 cup Aquamarine Liquid Dye
1 Tablespoon Lemon Yellow
3 gallons HOT water
I added the dye to a washer machine filled with HOT water. Then 1 Tablespoon liquid detergent and 1 cup salt.
The salt will help the dye to stick to the fabric.

The coverage of the dye wasn't perfect. Probably because this was not a fresh brand new garment, who knows what was spilled on this dress.
Anyway I wanted to make this dress into a halter dress.
I cut the back of the dress off from the back of the collar. Then I pinned under the front of the sides.

Onto the back! I folded down the back flap of the dress to make a back hem. Sewed that!

After I cut secured the back I needed to make it more fitted. I tucked the excess material at the underarm area.
After all my alterations the dress was still too large for me. I came up with the idea of pulling the dress up and securing it at the back of the neck.
I found the middle of the collar and cut it. I stitched up both sides of the collar then I made two button holes and sewed 2 buttons on the back of the collar.

The Button Down Dress/Jacket

Hello Refashion Co-op. This hand-me-down dress was a little tight on top for me. I really liked the idea of making it into a jacket-shirt and wearing it open.

I cut the top of the dress off and hemmed it. I used the hem at the bottom to make a matching belt.

 I wasn't sure what to do with the ends of the belt. I stitched the ends at the back and added a couple buttons to make it look more finished. It also kept the ends out of the way. I liked that it looked a little like a trench coat.
