There's a lot of recycling/upcycling going on. It's something I used to do. There was this one time I turned a pair of mens pants into a dress for a teen who's mom thought we were both crazy when she asked if I could and I said, of course! It was cute, in a funky, I don't want to be like anyone else way.
Anyway, I have had this idea in my head and it took the dead line for the 2010 spring top week sponsered by Made By Rae to get me going. I'd already entered this top, but wanted to try and do another.....
Be kind, I started it last night, it didn't turn out like I wanted, I did everything wrong but, it still kinda turned out right.
This was an old long sleeve boxy sort of shirt.
Uh hum, should have thought about it being a gauzy like fabric..... I think the bias cut ruffles are fun though I am not usually a ruffley person. They also hide the fact that I made the shirt too small by tweaking it too far.... oops. Now I'm glad I did cause I love them.
Right before I grabbed Kelly so she could take photos, it started raining. This is the best we got of the back. The fabric is Ta Dot by Micheal Miller. I love it and wish I had more.
I think I'll try this again only I'll give myself a bit more time!
