Hello, I'm Jeni and this is my first contribution to Refashion Co-op. Sewing is a big passion of mine, and I got into refashioning clothing a few years ago because I can never find clothes in the store that I like. A lot of my refashions involve giving clothing a faintly 50s twist as I simply adore the fashions of that era! True to that sentiment, my very first entry to this blog is a long sleeved t-shirt that I have turned into a 50s style halterneck top.
To begin at the beginning, here is the before photo, just a plain and simple long sleeved, high neck t-shirt.
I love the hot pink colour but it was a bit plain for my taste. Plus, as it's summer I wanted to make it into something a bit more suitable for the lovely warm weather.
And so the halterneck top was created! The sleeves have been tucked into the side seams to create the neckline, the full step by step instructions can be found on my blog Lola Nova where I have photographed the whole process.
I plan on wearing this with a circle skirt, denim jeans and a pencil skirt (not all at the same time though, that would be mad!).
Until next time,
