Recent Refashions

Hey Co-op! June is over half way through and I just realized I've not yet shared a refashion! These are a few of my recent favs...

This refashion started as a pair of unworn patterned tights...I cut off the toes and the crotch. Hemmed the new raw edges (which then became my sleeves and neckline) and added straps to create a top perfect for adding an extra layer of warmth (without bulk!) over the winter months here in NZ.
My next refashion started as a gorgeous wee vintage wool dress I bought at a Theater garage sale for $3. I love the colour sooo much but the fit was all wrong. So after a number of alterations I now have a gorgeous winter coat!

And my last but not least more winter warmers! Two old tops I'd not worn in awhile both refashioned into more than 1 new item..a cropped top & leg warmers from the black top. A mini skirt, wrist warmers & a beanie from the stripey jumper (both tops were orginally thrifted too and worn in their original forms ;)

Thanks for looking..as always you'll find me here on Facebook ;) xx

I love all of these Huli! Especially the yellow coat though, I will definitely be borrowing this idea in the Fall :)

All wonderful but that coat/dress is one of the cleverest refashions ive seen!
