Hello Refashion Co-op. I found this great houndstooth skirt at a clothes swap. It looked like new except for a few snagged threads.
Small fix #1: This weave is a little loose and I can see how it could snag on things easily. I gently pulled the threads through to the inside and that repaired the outside of the skirt.
Small Fix #2: It was a little bit big so I had to size it down. This skirt had a side zipper so I altered the other side. This idea is just like what Saga did in her recent refashion project- Simple Skirt Refashion.
I was really concerned about this fabric fraying so I used bias tape to cover the new seam. The black bias tape will be inside so no one will know but me. .....and you guys. That was Small Fix #2.
Small Fix 3: I have had this denim shirt for ages. It is soft and broken in and I love it but the front doesn't lay flat. It gapes open between the second and third button. This always happens to me with button down shirts, the only fix for me is a few stitches over the existing seam. It is permanently closed and I have to pull it over my head but that's OK.
Alright then, all the small fixes were easy and made these clothes more wearable.
Thanks for reading!
