I took part in a challenge which aim was to make a Valentine's day skirt. I wanted something I could wear at work. I had made this plain red skirt a couple of years ago. I found a navy blue elastic and just added it. I'm pretty pleased with the result !
Hi! I was trying to tidy up a bit in my sewing room when I found the bottoms of some pant legs I'd chopped off to make shorts & a scrap of blue fabric I'd had for years... The pant legs looked like they would almost fit me around as a skirt but I already have 4 black minis! So I added a triangle of the blue (which is actually much more bright&vibrant than my pics show!) to the centre front. Then out of a small scrap left over I made a removable bow to add to a black thrifted top I'd previously refashioned to make a cute outfit... I love using lil scraps that would have probably ended up as trash to make something wearable =)
Happy belated New Year, everyone! Here's my first refashion: I used leftover material from the tartan skirt and the green dress I refashioned earlier to make a kilt-like skirt for my friends' new baby.
I really enjoyed making this because it took so little time and material - I have to make more baby clothes in the future!
I have made something everyday this year!! That's dedication isn't it!? Yesterday I grabbed some studio time, found 2 T-shirts in a pile of clothes which was dropped in my lap and made my Bear and Bubble something new and comfy!
Bear now has a new pair of comfy pants which also resemble a pair of fisherman pants. I also found out that the original shirt was damaged by bleach but I think it looks great on his pants. I used an existing pair of his pants as the pattern. Yes my 4 year old is obsessed with Michael Jackson.
I made Bubble a skirt using the bottom of another shirt. Just cut straight across and added elastic. I also removed some patches from the shirt and resewed them onto the skirt.
All in all not bad for an hour in the studio. You can check out more on my BLOG.
I also had time to make myself a necklace from a thimble check it out HERE.
Plus a new up cycled tutorial of mine has also been featured in a lovely new Tea Zine buy a fellow refashioner check it HERE.
Well I think that's it. I hope I can stay in contact with all my new refashion friends long after Nikki has started on her new journey. I wish Nikki the best of luck in 2011... Bring it on!!
Hi! I've worn and loved this dress for about 4 years...I actually did a few minor refashions on it when I bought it to improve the fit but alas my boobs have shrunk and it just wasn't fitting comfortably anymore: So all I did to make it ready to wear was carefully remove the bust part and add a couple darts at the back: I really like the extra length it has now as a skirt and now I think I know what I'll be wearing for christmas =)
I want to thank Nikki for the opportunity to share & be a part of wardrobe refashion...I've loved it =)
And I also want to wish everyone here a very merry christmas & happy new year! Keep up the the amazing work x Huli
This one is for my roommate. I used a pair of pants she discarded because of wear & tear and the pre-pleated tartan fabric I had taken off another skirt. To pull the whole piece together, I added tartan adornments to the pockets. Success?
