I've been following Nikki's Wardrobe Refashion blog for quite some time now. I've also been doing lots of making and refashioning, but rarely get around to blogging it all (hence why I have never officially joined the Wardrobe Refashion blog - just can't commit to the weekly posting part...). And for reasons soon to be revealed, I've been especially inspired lately, and rather than just making clothing from recycled fabric remnants, I've decided to start actually reworking existing articles of clothing. And here is my first.
Phoofy 80s dress, probably made for a 12 or 13 year old girl, given how tight it was across my post babies non-existent bosoms.
Turned into a dress whose shape is inspired by a beautiful handmade dress I recently purchased from Victoria n' Bird from Etsy for my birthday.
It's still a little more full than I'd prefer, but given the whole refashion cost $4 and took about half an hour, I'm pretty chuffed.
As my son would say, "crackerlackerlicious" (it's his new word - thanks Madagasca 2!!!!!)
And the reason for being extra-inspired lately? Well, the Stitches and Craft show is about to start in Melbourne in only two days and I am very excited, as Nikki has organised a Wardrobe Refashion Fashion Show, and Jade and I will have six of our Beckybean bags heading down the catwalk. Can't wait for it to come to Brisbane and see it all in person. I'll show the bags in another post soon. Whhheeeeee!!!! Crackerlackerlicious!!!!!!
