With black and white being very trendy right now, particularly in the form of stripes, I was reminded this week of a lovely faux-layered blouse-vest-dress thingy, which I got for free and refashioned last year.
All I did was pick out the seams attaching the striped fabric, and I had the perfect black sweater vest. But I was left with those striped remnants which have languished in my stash for over a year now. After much draping and piecing, I cobbled all the bits together into a new top!
In a nutshell, the sleeves became the bust and the skirt became the lower half, but if you're interested in details (and lots more pics), check out the full run-down over at CarissaKnits!
How's that for an almost-zero-waste refashion?
