I decided to pledge along with Me-Made May this year and my pledge was to wear me-made items everyday this month, make two pieces from patterns (something I NEVER do) and complete 10 refashions. Well, I have completed two refashions and wore them together today!
The first was this sleeveless lace top that I thrifted last month:
I turned it into a peplum tank by cutting off the bottom half, opening the loops and resewing them together before gathering and attaching it to the top half again...but it was kinda loose so I added a few pleats in the back at the new waist and then gathered the sleeves at the shoulder as I didn't like the original width. Here's how it came out:
My next piece was this thrifted floral t-shirt:
I cut it up the center, shortened the length and finished off the raw edges with twill and bias tape. Now I've got a new cropped floral cardi that I'm absolutely in love with!
Come see a bit more on these refashions and how I wore them today here. Hope you like 'em because I'm crushing on the two together big time! ;)
