For today’s remake, I began with two things I already had in my collection – they were old H&M sweaters that I wasn’t wearing that were in my donation pile.
However, for my trip to AZ I needed a couple of sweaters for one of the TV segments that I was doing, so I went right to these both.
Exhibit A (sweater which has an annoying neck):
Exhibit B (sweater which is overly pilly):
Check out and see what I crafted these two into!!
If my mom wore this dress in the 80s, it would have been one that I coveted as a kid!
The teal suede sash in front? Better than Miss America!
And that print! It’s like an abstract piece of art – brush strokes all over.
It’s a little much as is…
…but I’m going to make it winter ready in just a few steps!
When someone sends you a note on cat stationery, it becomes a treasured piece of mail! The lovely Darci in MI sent a remake my way that was striped perfection. Here’s her note!
My crafty sewing friend helped me recreate this dress into something that I’d actually wear.
Time to see what Darci changed this striped apron-y/dress into…
Yeah, so this one is most definitely added to the “more uncomfortable vintage finds” list. It’s a whole lotta polyester!
Polyester with a big ol’collar and a zipper down the front! Also there’s a few belt loops with nothing to put inside…
Kind of itchy, seriously heavy, and without a whole ton of awesomeness going on.
However, I’m a-gonna bring that awesomeness. You heard, I’m a-gonna bring it!
When I saw this dress, at first look I thought it could have been a blanket.
It was sitting in a pile of clothes and all I saw was the shiny yellow quilted skirt, yet still it had to be mine.
I thought it just needed some simple length adjustment…
…but then I found something else!!
