New Contributor with Jeans and T-shirt Festival Style Refashion

Hello Refashion Co-op! I'm Kristen and I am so excited to join you all as a new contributor here. I first got interested in refashioning a few years ago when I was looking at some of the awesome blogs out there. I started sewing and refashioning some things over a year ago and now am a technical apparel design student. I recently started my blog, Quirk Your Closet to share my refashions and other sewing and clothing related content.

My most recent refashion involved transforming a t-shirt I had and a pair of thrift store jeans.


I wasn't a fan of the cut of this t-shirt neckline and where it was hitting at the bottom, so it was in for a dramatic festival style make-over, turning it into a fringed crop top. For the jeans, they were destined to become some distressed cutoff shorts. This was a lot of fun to take a sandpaper block to these jeans to get the distressed look. The jeans were a no sew refashion, making them a great project for anyone regardless of if they can sew or not.

The final look is a festival ready style that is quite a change from where the outfit started.


For a more in-depth look at how I did this refashion, you can check out the post about it on my blog.

Happy refashioning!

I love what you did. I have been thinking that I need a pair of cut off jeans myself. The top turned out really cute. Welcome to the group.
