I am not a gingham person ( I am referrring to Refashion Runway Season 3, Week 2).I really tried to figure out some way, I would like it. I Pinterested myself blue in the head. But no, I just can't do with gingham. Too cute, too kitchen curtains. And I don't care that it is in fashion right now.
But I did find this in the sale pile in my local fabric store, having gingham on my mind. A water repellant cotton fabric. And I actually liked it. I bought a remnant of it to make at pair of spats. But obviously it is not a refashion.Disqualified for not using an existing wearable.
Quite a few tartan and checkered garments had also shown up, when I Pinterested gingham. So I decided to do a checkered refashion.Disqualified for using a checkered fabric other than gingham. But luckily I am only sewing along.
A too large checkered skirt and the top of a dress from a previous refashion.
- I took the skirt in a the sides.
- I used the cutoff to make an asymmetric tube to use as neck adornment:
|I haven't attached it yet. I am not sure of how it will look best.|
- Lastly I sewed black ribbon from my stash onto some of the seams of the skirt to give the dress a little edge.
It is SO me. It will be perfect for fall.
