Refashioning a Refashion

Hello Refashion Co-op. How are all of you today? I don't know why but some clothes hang in my closet and I don't know why. 

I made this gray top from a big men's T-shirt. You can see how I did it here. I loved it when I made it but I just didn't wear it. I can't explain why but I just didn't.
I also had a great skirt that I did like a lot. I decided to put them together.

I cut the ruffle off the bottom of the shirt and I attached it to the inside of the skirts hem. It made the outfit a lot more fun.

Jeans revisited

I refashioned a pair of jeans that either my mom or my sister gave to me to make my daughter a new pair in size 6. It starts to get hard to refashion adult jeans this way for her, but these were big enough. Even though, I had to make a few adjusts to the pattern I used. More specifically, I added an elastic knit band at the waist, and even though the crotch was a bit too long. The fun detail in the hem was recreated from a pair of pants she had when she was younger.

The Easy Way to Un-BeDazzle

Hello Refashion Co-op. I found a great little cropped denim jacket recently. It was my size and already broken in. It was perfect, except for all the gold studs. I hated the gold studs. Someone had fun with their BeDazzler! I like to find hand-made creations but this one didn't quite suit me. 

I decided to remove the studs by cutting off the pocket flaps. That's right, I just cut them off. Does that count as refashion-ing?

But wait there's more! The studs were also across the back of the jacket. I couldn't cut off the whole back so...

I pried and forced them off with these large kitchen shears. It wasn't that difficult to do.

There are tiny holes where the studs were. It looks OK to me. The holes blend in well with the fade pattern of the denim. I like it as is and I don't mind the rough or distressed look.

Suit to skirt refashion

I found this skirt suit in my local charity shop to use for the refashioners challengeI made it into a knee length A line skirt.  The jacket formed the greater part of the transformation, the skirt was used for donor panels.

I used a newly bought invisible zipper foot to make some piping

Basically the skirt was made up of 2 layers of panels with the piping between.  The high stretch content of the fabric meant I could add a soft waistband without needing a zip.

There are full details and more photos here
