Hello from a new "Life" member!

Roll on Summer

Thinking of Summer I bought these two tops from a garage sale for $2.00 each, both way too big at size 20, but very easy to refashion100_2555

 The white cotton kaftan had splits in the side and arms, I stitched and took in the sides, and shortened the sleeves, also added some purple shirring under the bust and on sleeve edge,not real good pics but you'll get the drift.

I love purple

The second smock, shown here on Mary the model, needed some help, the wings were the first to go, and I crossed over the straps at the back and also took the sides in,and of course the buttons from my ever growing button stash. Perfect.




Gotta love shirring

Tomorrow a friend is doing my hair, so today I whipped up a couple of pairs of nappy covers for her one year old....from thrifted gingham and a boys sheet...the pattern was drafted from Enid Gilchrist...psst anyone over 40 remember the Coppertone girl lol


Fully reversible and cute


Thats all for this week, my heads spinning Ive just spend two hours doing my Etax OUCH!!!

Happy refashioning everyone.

p.s if anyone would like a copy of the kini pants nappy cover thingys let me know and I will happily send it to you Aussies only sorry.
