I love the fact that my kids' school has a uniform, but also that the school is quite relaxed about it. Parents buy their check dresses from all sorts of different uniform suppliers, so there are various styles on campus. I therefore thought there was no harm in stylin' one up.
Hi! So I was saying today how not everything I make turns out as I had imagined...I bought a kimono (I did take a pic but I can't seem to find it!) at one of my local thrift shops for $3! I knew staight away I wanted to make a long dress from it so I started chopping it up as soon as I got home...the finished dress looked awful, frumpy and with side splits that just looked strange! I guess I should have taken pics but no instead I ripped it apart at the seams...I was too annoyed to be bothered unpicking nicely! I'm super happy I didn't just leave it stuffed back into my "too be refashioned..." pile though because this is how it looks now: The panals at the front were from the kimono so I had to work with them...I love the print soo much and even though at 1st I wanted a long dress I'm thinking it looks much better short.
Hi! I bought this dress the other day for $3 =) It was a sz 14/16: I wasn't in love with my 1st refashion: So I took my sissors to it again: Loving my end result...it fits great and is super comfortable =)
I've had a few people ask if I have my own blog...well as yet I don't so today I decided to make a page on Face Book so if you like what I make and want to see more once Wardrobe Refashion closes please "like" Made with love by Hulibug.
Hiya! Today I decided to use this top I never wore...I thrifted it about 6 years ago as a set with a matching skirt which I loved and wore alot but the top was too big&too short: I cut it in half and took in each half to fit my bust...Then made two very different dresses using fabric from my stash :) I used the bottom half for the bodice of this maxi dress...I kept the original hem at the top :) My 2nd dress I just kinda made up as I went...I've had this fabric in my stash for years but never used it as it has a glittery sheen...soo not me! but the blue matched the colour in bodice perfectly so I used the wrong side for the outside :)
