St. Patrick's Day T-Shirt

Hello Refashion Co-op. St. Patrick's Day is coming and I wanted to make a shirt for the day. I love a theme for my sewing. 

Before and after.

This is one of those freebie t-shirts that you can find everywhere. I took this from a clothes swap because it was green, I painted over the logo to hide it a little. I will hide it even more in a minute.

I cut a piece of the scarf to make a pocket. It will hide that logo completely.

I cut the shirt to a cropped length and clipped the scarf around the bottom. It is going to make a peplum/ruffle around the hem of the shirt.

My shirt was ready for the holiday. For more details go to I Can Work With That.

Long Sweater to Tie Front Sweater

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I have been wanting this denim shirt for months. I don't buy clothes often so I have been on the lookout for a way to make one for myself. I had this long sweater on my refashion rack and thought it might be a substitute. I wanted to make this long sweater into a cropped length sweater that tied in the front. 

Before and after.

There was a bleach mark on the back so this sweater had to be shortened and altered to get rid of this. 

I shortened the sweater and made a waistband out of the long pieces that were cut off. 

I clipped the waistband in place to see how it fit. 

I liked the new tie front sweater a lot. For more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.
