Denim Days-Dying Dots

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I found this purple denim jacket at a clothes swap. It was perfect for a refashion in May because I am working with denim all month. The purple polka dots caught my eye but after I took it home and washed it... the purple just seemed too purple???

Before and after. 

Is it the lavender shade of purple? Is it the dots? Something isn't working here. 

Red wine seemed like a better color choice. I used this dye to dye the jacket. I thought the wine color would cover the lavender well. 

 
The color turned out great. I decided to cut the jacket into a cropped length and cut the sleeves shorter too. I like the look of fraying denim so this was a fun jacket for me. 

I really liked how is lightweight jacket turned out. 

I dyed these old khaki pants with the jacket and they turned out well too. Thanks for reading along!

Denim Days-White Vest to Jacket

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I decided to put this white vest and white lace shirt together. 

Before and after. 

I cut the sides of the vest open so I could sew in some fabric from the lace shirt. 

I used fabric from the sides of this lace shirt to fill in the sides of my vest. 

I decided to add the sleeves and make this a jacket. 

I decided to add some lace trim to the collar too. You can see more pictures and details at I Can Work With That.

Denim Days-Overalls

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I have been wanting a pair of overalls and decided to put a pair together for myself. 

Before and after.

I started with these baggy denim jeans with an elastic waist. I thought they would work for loose overalls.

I used all kinds of scraps and leftovers from other refashions.

They turned out well. I was very comfy. 

They were great for a cool spring day at the beach. Thanks for reading along, for more pictures and details, go to I Can Work With That.
