It is super thrilling to be able to participate in this blog, thank you for the invitation! I've been reading along for quite a while now. I have always loved thrifting and making my own clothes, so upcycling, recyling, or re-fashioning is basically my middle name. ;-)
I live in Vienna, Austria, but am originally from Switzerland. I spent five years in New York, making my diploma in Music Theater. I am a professional singer, lots of Opera, Operetta and Musicals are on my schedule... in recent years I've become more and more interested in what my costumes will look like though, and I am known to be wandering around the dressmaking departments asking a million of questions... :-) (And getting the answers, too!)
The above is my most recent upcycling project, and I added about a hundred "making-of" pictures on my blog, so you can see how the transformation happened. I'd love to have you come over for a visit! Here is the Post for the Topturned Pants!
If you are interested in the other two projects at the beginning of the post, Here is the post for the Jean-Top (it was my very first blog post!) and Here is the post for the Plaid Skirt.
I have a pretty exciting upcycling project planned for my next contribution here. I'm only saying this much: a new life for my husbands old suit... Hopefully it'll work out!
Happy recycling everybody!
PS: It would be great to have buttons for our own blogs - you know, the scissors button with the writing "member of", to link to this blog here... Or does it already exist?
