For this week’s refashion, I wanted to sew along with the theme for this first week of Season Two’s Refashion Runway Competition, which is plaid!
Since Season One of the Refashion Runway Competition has ended, I’ve really missed it, so I was super excited to hear that there would be a second season!
With the first week’s theme being plaid, I knew I could use the leftovers from my plaid bathrobe to infinity scarf refashion.
Since I only used the back panels for last week’s refashion, I was still left with all of this…
I decided to make an apron, because one can never have too many aprons, am I right?
First, I cut off the sleeves and what was left of the back, leaving the collar intact.
After separating what I needed to make my apron, I was left with this…
After setting aside the sleeves, I folded the front opening over itself (matching right sides together), pinned and sewed…
After the front was connected, I folded the apron in half (right sides together), and placed one of my existing aprons on top as a guide.
I wanted my new apron to be longer and slightly wider, so I cut around the apron, but gave myself extra width and length…
After it was cut to the shape I wanted, I folded both sides over a couple of times and pinned, and then hemmed them down nicely…
Now the only thing left to do was attach the ties.
Since this started out as a bathrobe, it naturally came with a belt, which worked nicely as the ties for my new apron.
I just cut the belt in half and pinned and sewed each half onto the sides of my apron. Voilá!
Well, what do you think?
Pretty snazzy ‘eh?
Did you see the large wooden fork in my pocket?
So there you have it.
I was able to get two refashions out of this bathrobe so far, with more fabric left for a future one.
Any ideas/suggestions as to what I should do for bathrobe refashion number three?
Have a great weekend!
