Natalie is my kind of girl. Let's just discuss for a second...
- Refashioning is one of her favorite things to do. (Samesies!)
- One of her first project was making little pillows (Samesies!)
- Thinking outside the box and crafting something old into something new. (Samesies!)
When I saw her project I just knew we were destined to be refashioning pals. See what she created...
I've been a fan of your blog for a while now, and I've had a love for sewing since my mom taught me to make little pillows with a needle and thread. I've since upgraded to a machine, and refashioning thrift store clothing is one of my favorite hobbies. Is it because I'm cheap? Yes. Is it because I like thinking outside the box and recycling something old into something new? Yes.
I found this lovely denim-ish button down dress at a Goodwill in Festus for $2.25.
My friend's expression explains how we felt about it initially.
Best. Expression. Ever. See what Natalie did to this denim number...
After taking up the straps, taking in the sides, chopping a bunch off the bottom, and adding a little elastic to cinch the waist some more, I ended up with a dress that I wouldn't be embarrassed to wear in public!
How's about that for a gorgeous new denim jumper???
I think this piece is perfect - what a way to take something outdated and give it new life in a totally current way! It looks like something you'd grab at the store! Natalie, my refashioning BFF, can't wait to see what you craft next!
