Too Small, Too low, Too Big

Hello Refashion Co-op. Some of my refashions are simple and casual for everyday living life. Today's is one of those. This striped shirt was too small for me but I liked the stripes. The red shirt fit well but it was too low cut. The jeans were just a little too baggy and long on me.

I put the striped shirt on my dress form. I put the red shirt on top of the striped shirt. I pinned the shirts together so I could use the striped shirt to fill in the low cut red shirt. I cut off all the excess material. I added the striped sleeves to the red shirt as well.

I ended up with a red shirt that looks like there is a blue shirt underneath, but really it is just the neckline and the sleeves attached. I decided to add the blue waistband to tie it all together. The red shirt fits and the striped shirt made it warmer and less low cut.

 The jeans just needed a little taken off the sides and shorter legs.

I know this outfit isn't super exciting but it was perfect for doing casual mom stuff. 

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

Cute refashion. I like that you added the bottom band too. Ties it altogether and gives you a tab bit more length. Great job.

Thanks Jean! I like how the band worked out too. It made it seem more of a sweatshirt. :)
