Refashion #3 - The Aqua Print Dress
Almost . . .
Thanks for all the compliments on the refashions! I am much happier with the new versions, and it wasn't that hard to do. If you've got pieces in your wardrobe you don't wear, take a look at them and see if you can refashion them. Not all pieces can be saved, but maybe someone else will love them more than you did - at least that's what I hope when I donate things!
I almost got it done, but it just didn't happen yesterday. I'm pretty close - all I need to do is to sew on and finish the neck binding and add a hook/eye. The binding is even pinned in place:
So far, it is turning out really well, I've got the back zipper I wanted and it went in nicely the first time, without basting half a dozen times:
I was also able to save the pocket on the skirt. I ended up gathering the front a little more than the back to make sure the pocket was in the right place, but it doesn't look uneven.
Maybe tonight I'll get that binding finished up, if not, then definitely tomorrow morning. I want to move on to working on a project that I'm now going to starting calling The Holy Grail - a jeans pattern. I've got two new patterns I want to try and it should be interesting if nothing else.
Parting Shot: Yellow. Here's a few pictures of the yellow shirt I finished last week. I wore it this way on Saturday with a little bit of turquoise and a yellow cardigan. It was a bit too cool to wear it by itself, as in the last photo.
