 Hello Refashion Co-op. I don't know about the rest of the world but it is super HOT where I live. It is humid and awful. I got back to basics and made some shorts. It is way to hot for long pants. 

These wild colorful pants made great shorts. I just cut the length and made a new hem.

That was so easy I made this brown pair of shorts in the same way. Hopefully these will help me stay cool in the heat. 

These shorts were a little different. They were too short. I opened up the hem and made a new shorter/smaller hem. I used the extra fabric that was folded up in the hem to make the shorts longer. 
Whatever you are sewing currently I hope you are staying safe in this heat. Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.

Simplify Shirt & Shorten Sleeves

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I love linen so I liked this linen shirt ... until I put it on. The sleeves were too long and the shirt had this weird flaps on the front. What were the flaps for, what was going on with this shirt. 

Before and after. 

I cut the flaps off the front. They did not make sense to me. This shirt was going to be better without these unnecessary pieces of fabric. 

I used this lace to cover the cut edges on the front of the shirt. 

I cut and hemmed the sleeves. 

My new simple shirt! Thanks for reading along, for more pictures and how-to details go to I Can Work With That.

Long blouse turned into modern blouse jacket


Hi everyone! A few months ago I visited a nice second hand store and fell for the dark blue, almost purple, colour of the print. I didn't like the length though. It gave me 'housekeeping' vibes and, in combination with the print, reminded me of the blouses and aprons housewives wore in the 60s and 70s to keep their clothes clean. But since I liked the colour, I decided to buy it to turn it into something more modern and more 'me'. 

When I started this refashion the thought of a blouse jacked immediately came to me. It would be fun to wear and layers are always practical in summer, especially when you easily get cold or warm, like me. 

The blouse came with an extra perk: it had pockets! And fortunately, I could keep the pockets (yay) and still cut of enough of the length. 

The next steps didn't seem like rocket science... I serged the cut edges, folded it and created a tunnel for a cord to pull through. I made the cord out of the original seam. But then, when I thought I was finished.... oops, how could I have missed it? 


As you can see, the new fastening with tunnel and cord made it impossible for the button band to close how it was supposed to! It felt like such a beginner's mistake! Well, I definitely had to fix that...

I cut just before the button band, folded back the edges with some glue and gave it a few stitches, just to be sure. Then I folded back the end of the button band and stitched. It was the easy way out, I admit, but it worked:).

Interested in more details or want to find out why I felt the need to mention Trinny (What not to wear) Woodall in my blog:)? You're welcome to visit, as always!
