News from the Editors

We're looking for a few good refashioners to join the editing team -- are you one?!? We need to fill a few daily positions as well as get someone to take over as Instagram Editor. It shouldn't take too much time away from your refashioning once you complete a brief (and fun!) training session with one or more of the current editors. Just think -- you can help shape the future of this blog! If you are interested in learning more, please drop a line to us at refashioncoop@ with 'Editor Info Please' in the subject line. We're looking forward to hearing from you!

Men's button down shirt Refashion!

My boyfriend had this shirt he no longer wanted because he "didn't like the light buttons on the shirt". So it is all mine!! yes!

I evened the bottom hem, cut underneath the arms to create the skirt. I added some pleats to make it fit me. I made a waist band using leftover fabric from the sleeve and added elastic to tighten. Then a hook and eye to close the waist band and bias trim for the hem. Here is my new skirt!

Pretty nice and probably the nicest finished skirt I have ever made. Even the boyfriend approved. For more information with pictures for this project click here.
