Black and White and Fruit All Over

Hello Refashion Co-op. How are you? I did three simple refashions last weekend and wore them all together. They didn't come together as a set but I thought they belonged together.

I started with this simple black and white T-shirt. It needed to be taken down in size and the neck needed to be pulled back so it wouldn't gape open. I removed fabric from the middle of the back and the sides. I tried it on and removed some more from each side.

This black and white cardigan was great but the sleeves were too long. They were also so big around I couldn't get them to stay pushed up. I took some excess out of each arm so I could push the sleeves up and keep the sleeves out of my way.

The third piece of this little collection was made from the bottom of a dress I refashioned a while back. It looks like dots but it is really covered with little fruits. (That was a lot of fruit!) I had cut that bottom piece off and tossed it in the scrap pile. 

I recently found that scrap when I cleaned up my sewing area. It is almost an infinity scarf already, It just needs a little help. I removed the buttons and connected the fabric so it made a big circle. I folded the raw edge under and stitched it down too. 

These were all quick and easy projects. They made a nice combo when all put together.

Thanks for reading, for more details and pictures go to I Can Work With That.
