Happy Friday everyone!
For this week’s 49-cent Friday refashion, I wanted to show you the Halloween costume I refashioned for my daughter’s American Girl doll.
First, we started with these two articles of clothing…
Very Halloweeney (is that a word?)
I was lucky enough to find each of these items for 49-cents several months ago.
I really liked the skirt for my daughter, but it had some issues.
The main issue was the fact that it was too big!
I could’ve just taken it in to fit her, but I had forgotten that she actually had a very similar skirt already (which fit her just fine).
The other issue the skirt had was this… Continue reading
Happy Friday ya’all!
Can you believe there’s less than a week until Halloween? Yikes!
Unfortunately, my kids won’t be able to go trick-or-treating this year, because my daughter has dance class.
She does, however, get to dress up for her class, as long as her costume doesn’t hinder her from dancing.
We chose this costume that I scored for 49-cents several years ago from Mel Trotter (that she had since outgrown)…
Hmm, this will do!
Monday was my beautiful daughter’s 10th birthday!
She is growing up so fast, I can hardly believe it’s been 10 years since she first blessed us with her presence!
In honor of her birthday, I decided to fix my failed refashion from last week by making something awesome for my daughter.
Last Friday I tried (in vain) to refashion a too-tight pair of leather pants into a (or what was supposed to have been) pencil skirt.
Unfortunately, this is what it looked like when I realized I was in way over my head and decided to give up (or at least take a break for a while)…
Yeah, that ended up nothing like I had envisioned!
After taking several days off, I decided to go an easier route.
I started with this long-sleeved gray t-shirt that had shrunk and was now too tight for me. Continue reading
For this third week of Season Two’s Refashion Runway Competition, the theme is peplum and I had the perfect thing to use…
So this thing is a bit large, but I really
like love the fabric. I love the floral print and the fact that this fabric doesn’t wrinkle. (Did I mention how much I hate ironing?)
I decided to make a mullet shirt with an added peplum.
To accomplish this, I used the same technique as I did in my high-low dress refashion.
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… Continue reading
I purchased this bathrobe a year ago with a very specific refashion in mind…
Not too shabby for 49-cents, ‘eh?
Unfortunately, when the hubs saw it, he thought I had gotten it for him.
Not wanting to disappoint, I went ahead and let him believe that.
He wore it a lot at first, but lately, it’s just been collecting dust.
When I asked him if he would let me refashion it, he kindly obliged. Yay!
I found this awesome shirt a while ago from Mel Trotter (my favorite local thrift store) for a mere 49-cents (of course).
As you can see, this thing is odd-fitting and just all around odd.
Don’t get me wrong, I clearly saw potential in it or I wouldn’t have bought it in the first place.
I loved the bright colors and the fruit is kinda fun and funky.
The thing is, I’m really not into wearing my fruit.
