Diy cowl neck top | beginner friendly sewing


Diy cowl neck top | beginner friendly sewing | pattern 


Hello, in this DIY/ thrift flip video I sew cowl neck top. \I show you step by step tutorial on how to use my pattern from previous video and how to sew simple cowl neck top. 
You will learn what fabrics are the best to this project as it's very important, wrong fabric can destroy whole effect.
To sew it I used simple fabric scraps.  

Silk Skirt, Silk Pajamas

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I received a pile of hand-me-downs from a friend and in the pile was this colorful silk wrap skirt. It was reversible so you could wear it with the green or the orange on the outside. 

I thought the skirt was a little too long on me and the orange and green colors were a lot for me to wear all at once. So I cut the orange layer out of the skirt. 

I liked the green wrap skirt a lot. I like green and I love silk.

I used the orange layer to make pajama shorts and a tank top. 

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

It's an old apron that I turned into a pretty short-sleeved shirt.

Kentucky Derby Hat Revisited

In honor of the Kentucky Derby tomorrow I wanted to revisit the Kentucky Derby hat I made last year for The Refashion Runway Season 5!

The Hat:

I grabbed some fabric spray paint (which is super fun to use) from JoAnn’s. I sprayed underneath the brim with the white paint and the whole outside with the rose gold paint (swoon!)


Over the years I have accumulated a basket FULL of faux flowers from Michaels, JoAnns, Hobby Lobby and even Dollar Tree! I took a look through my stash of faux flowers and found a few pieces that I think would tie my hat to my floral dress!

I added this beautiful pearl and sheer ribbon I also had stashed in my ribbon box!

While the white paint underneath the brim was still wet I laid the hat down on some white lace material I had and carefully cut the width of the hat out. Let that dry!

I cut 3 long pieces of this silver sparkle tulle and folded them accordion style and stitched the ends together.

Now to fire up the hot glue gun! I began piecing my hat arrangement together. First some pink cattails and the silver sparkle tulle.

Some feathers and blue flowers.

Roses to match the dress material.

Lastly, I finished up adding the flowers and leaves. I always like to make my arrangements on the back of the hat.

I told you making Derby hats is my most favorite thing! Here are my past hats and now my most current hat!

The Sweater Saga Part 2

 Hello! There we have part 2 of the sweater saga! Today I wil show you my refashion on the lovely navy and silver sweater!

I cut a slit up the front to about the bellybutton area.

I pinned the flaps back and then the sweater was ready for sewing!

I used a medium ball-point needle and stretched my stitch length to 4.0mm

Can’t forget to take in the armpit and sleeves for a snug fit!
