Hey everyone! I'm Maggie, a new contributor to the blog. I've been sewing since I was in elementary school (with a toy machine), and my goal this year is to refashion three pieces of clothing for every one new item I buy in an effort to spark my creative sewing mojo again after becoming a parent a year ago. It seems that all of my time and energy are taken up by my son these days, and I want to get back into designing and making things again.
I'm in the middle of a BDU field jacket to messenger bag refashion at the moment with no pictures yet, so I'm afraid I'll just be posting one of my previous efforts for now. This is a Threadless XXL t-shirt that I converted into the skirt of a fun sundress. There is also skirt lining that isn't visible that was cut out of an old bed sheet. I used McCall's 5380 and New Look 6375 to piece the dress together. The bodice and skirt trim were cut from fabric remnants I had saved from other projects.
