I am also inspired by the Refashion Runway, and will attempt to sew along (I decided against applying for participating, since I wasn't sure if I would have enough time for it).
So: Floral and Geometric or Stripes.
I once refashioned this little dress (that had stilised flowers in a striped pattern). I liked the shape and look of it, but not the colour.
I dyed it with Dylon for washing machine, in the colour Amazon Green. Much better.
I had this cool ribbon in my ribbon stash, that my grandmother gave me. It is supposedly from the 60s or 70s. I sewed it to the neckline, the sleeves and the overskæring (where the bodice and the skirt meet).
And with a pair of leggins, a thin wool cardigan and laced boots it is just right for the cold, rainy, autumny summer weather, we have had lately.
The Dylon packet had enough dye for 600 g of fabric. So I found some more items of clothing that deserved a freshen up.
All the colours on the clothing are slightly more bright, over into fresh grass green, in real life, but my camera just wont have the green.
A boring floral skirt, now a much more interesting green.
A button up shirt with yellow stripes. Yellow just isn't my colour. But green is.
Long sleeve T-shirt. It is a cotton/polyester mix, and as it turned out, the whites stripes were the polyester - and polyester don't take to the dye.
So now I have a nice green longsleeve with white stripes. Cool.
Short sleeve button up shirt. I liked it, but black/white is too harsh on me. Now a more douche GREEN.
Green green green greeeeeen, oh how I love green :-).
