BEFORE: A cashmere blended skirt that I thrifted a few months back. It was pretty thin and incredibly soft. I was excited about the fact that it had no shape, just a flat rectangle with nothing but a draw string... Continue reading

That is stunning! I want one for me, bird applique and all. Thanks for all the details. I have a couple sweaters to cut up and this will be a really helpful reference.

Before: Anne Taylor sweater. It was soft, comfortable, and I loved the color. However, the neck was a little low for my liking and I didn't want to have to wear a camisole under it. The sweater felt a little... Continue reading

I used up every last scrap from my Talbot's dress in the process of winterizing these t-shirts. It was so satisfying not to have anything left over to add to my overwhelming stash of fabric. Before: Hand-me-down summer t-shirt After:... Continue reading

Talbot's dress: $4.00 at goodwill. I had originally meant it to be used to add sleaves to my kids t-shirts, but when I tried it on it just felt too nice! However, the length was horrible. So I chopped off... Continue reading

This skirt used to be a pair of corduroy pants my husband was getting rid of. The cuff of the legs became the waistband. The skirt hangs pretty straight, but it has a lot of give. I didn't have a... Continue reading

Here are a few refashions that I managed to throw together during nap time this week: I used this tutorial on how to use reverse applique to make a t-shirt more interesting. I rescued this shirt from our donation pile,... Continue reading

This was a crazy shirt that my husband's mother made for him as a teenager. Seriously, crazy fabric. I convinced him to let me turn it into something we'd see more than once a year on Halloween. Our little frog-loving... Continue reading

Before: After: (front) (back) I have had this tutorial bookmarked for more than a year. I even bought an awesome shirt last summer for this very purpose, but it never got done. We had a junk swap at church and... Continue reading

I think this fits into the reuse category. My little one is best friends with dirt, which causes a lot of laundry for me. Using old jeans and a pattern from Bend the Rules Sewing I made her a simple... Continue reading

I love this cardigan. It used to belong to my sister, and I have worn it to death. Babies have pulled beads off the collar, it was faded, stretched out, and last week it was accidentally thrown in the washer... Continue reading

This dress was made from a thrifted bedsheet, the stretch lace trim was from an estate sale, even the thread was bought second hand! I was so excited about the way it turned out. It was the first time I... Continue reading
