Refashioned: from buttondown men shirt to dress.

I LOVE refashioning. Or upcycling. Or whatever you call it. It is such a good idea to make something new out of something old (hm, something we also do at my work.. i see a pattern here đŸ˜‰ )

Last month there was the Restyling exchange of Pilar and Amy Nicole and I was so thrilled because the more the merrier and I love to see everyones take on what to make out of something excisting.

They asked you to send a garment (which you have but don’t wear) to your swap partner and vice versa, and to make something out of it for the other one. And that  scared me to bits.

Because sewing for myself: excellent!
For my loved ones: fine!
For some one I don’t know? Only through Instagram? OMG!

So I refashioned in spirit of the Restyling Exchange.

What did I have?
A XXXXXL denim button down men shirt.

And an polyester jersey infinity scarf

Refashioned: from buttondown men shirt to dress.

Finished: Miette skirt

Hi there! MeMadeMay was a blast, but also gave me an overdose of pictures of my outfits & myself. It was TOO much at the end. So I couldn’t bring myself writing any blogposts.

But I did some sewing! I finished my Itch to Stitch Bonn shirt, made my second Miette skirt, lengthened the Larktee pattern for a lovely tshirtdress and refashioned a XXXXL buttondown men shirt into a dress. The latter two I will show in another blogpost.
