I am so proud of myself to have kept up with RR sewalong this year ! But this is the last instalment and, frankly, I could use a break.
This last week, the stars worked on refashioning the Pantone color of the season: Riverside, basically, blue ! Not my favorite color so finding something to refashion was a bit tricky. Finally, I found some UGLY pants that my mom had given me a long time ago. They were the perfect shade !!!
So I got to work. It was fairly easy. All I had to do was cut the legs and open them. I was left with 2 large asymetrical pieces. I LOVE asymetry ! I did not have enough for sleeves, so, tank top it is !
Here are the pants:
How ugly are those !!! Elasticized waistband, shapeless, ugh !
And here is what I made from them:
|The straps are made with 2 different sized ties and contrasting buttons.|
|I love how the placement of the tie in the bottom accentuates the asymetry.|
|And the seams in the leg pieces give interest and texture.|
So how about that ? I love turning ugly clothes into cute and confortable pieces. Oh yeah, this fabric is SOOOO confortable ! Perfect for the last days of summer !
