And with out the words if you want to see close up.
Now I will try but the sheer magnitude of sewing and refashioning I am going to be doing, coupled with the fact research will be up and running full throttle here. Not all may make it on Refashion Co-Op. Though I will try! I am just getting started out here with my first 2 refashions of this year.
First, a sleeveless button down. It sort of does NOT fit me/fits me weird..
Example A: the neck is too tight and won't button. the arm holes are too big and open up. And it is too snug on my hips.
I decided to add a back piece of fabric since the armholes gape. I fixed the neckline. Changed the buttons! And made some fit adjustments. For all the details on this refashion, head on over to House of Estrela for the entire tutorial, as I am guest poster for her January Refashion Month! I love how the top now has a lovely surprise.
The other refashion I have to share is my mummy shirt. I could totally wear this for Halloween only or have it a bit more functional. Also, I needed fix the stain that was on the top that would not disappear with any magic.
Since the fit was good, I did an acid dye bath with Honey Mustard and it came out this lovely yellow color. I love it!
Who knew I could pull off yellow?! Love it
More on this refashion here.
Again, here is to a new year of great refashions! And me completely my crazy sewing goals for 2014!
