It's been awhile since I have done an actually refashion of a garment. My last refashion was my Traffic Stopping Dress which was refashioned into skirt and top... Gotta love a refashioned refashion.
So obviously it's getting colder. I need to make warmer choices when refashioning. My friend Amanda gave me her daughters size 6 pink and white stripped top.
Right there on the spot I knew it was going to be a dress for Bubble.
I sat down at my sewing machine and without measuring it took in the sides. Pretty simple refashion with a great result for Bubble don't you think? Worn with a long sleeve shirt and her Agoo 100% sustainable bamboo leghuggers it's the perfect Winter solution.
I even whipped up a belt with the left over pieces from cutting off the sides. Now this should have been easy but there was some confusion with how to make the belt loops stay put and hold in place. Eventually we figured it out and my 5min refashion was complete.
I have also been having more fun with some massive purple zippers (you can see them here at the end of the post) I wasn't sure what to make with them until it dawned on me... Make them into quirky coloured headbands. They have been added to my store and are a limited run as I only have a handful of those zippers left.
I also forgot to add to my listing that they are one size fits all!!
I have also added some green and grey hair tie sets. I am feeling a little sad that I will run out of zippers but I am also excited about finding new items to reclaim and recreate!!
