Once again, I am amazed at the creativity of my fellow sewing enthusiasts out in blog land. Today, The Selfish Seamstress blogged about her recent project, a chic hat she made from a pair of plaid pants Follow this link to see this amazing project. I love how she lined it with multicolour pieces, of lining; this brings back memories of my mom's big box of fabric scraps. While surfing I also came across a blogger, Sharon, who wrote a tutorial on refashioning a mens dress shirt into a camisole. Inspired by Anthropologie but not willing to pay the Anthropologie price tag, Sharon offers us a great way to get great style and recycle at the same time. And then there's Angie, at Sew I Thought who took a potato sack of a dress and used it to create a fabulous skirt Check out this skirt. Angie also did a refashion of a way to big 80's suit into a sundress. Although she wasn't happy with the fit of the end product, I think it's an amazing refashion. Have a look at the before and after shots. And at the blog Bytes and Bobbins you'll find a refashion of a skirt into a dress Yes, a skirt refashioned into a dress. Usually, it's the other way around. Oh and I just adore the peasant top that was recently posted on the blog My Gramma Said. The blog post has a complete tutorial.
Wow! With all these creative ideas I'm so happy I sew.
