I'm so sorry for my LONG absence. Between a new job (same place, different role in my dept) and preparing for my brother-in-law's wedding, sewing has CRASHED on the priority list. But as we swing into fall and the chaos settles, I've decided that I'm going to make every Tuesday evening my sewing night. I love this hobby and want- nay, NEED to make time for it.
So here's the recent refash, and a little bonus!
|Behold this cute shirt with a cute ruffle!|
|*squee* look at the flowers!|
|I actually liked the ruffle, but it wasn't working out :( So it had to go! I unpicked it from the collar|
|Of course, the unpicking left a mess which I had to stitch up|
|Sadly, the corners of the collar looked very sloppy. I needed to cover up all my 'handiwork'|
|So I grabbed some bits and bobs...|
|It was actually a tough choice, but I ended up with two teeny bits of white lace|
|Stitched on and much better!|
|Re-added the button I had to remove during unpicking|
|A close up of the collar|
|And the back!|
And now, for the extra bit:
|I took it in at the back, near the zipper|
|And at the sides|
|I left all the fabric attached and didn't cut anything out; It all laid nice and flat so there was no need to hack into it|
|And here I am! It still looks not-perfect but it fit me and looks fine in all the pictures. Not 'technically' a refashion, I know, but I was really proud that I had the courage to fix this on my own. Refashioning has GIVEN me that confidence! :)|
And there ya have it!
Back to the salt mines for now ;)
