Striped Cardigan

I thirfted this woman's sized striped shirt for 1€ at a charity shop last month. I was happy that I've put my hands on it so quickly and turned it into something new for my little princess. a cardigan. She picked the collar which is made from leftovers from a previous refashion I made for her little brother.

No Sew Wrap Dress

Hello friends!

I'm currently on Day 4 of 7 of my current refashion challenge.  Today kicked my butt and I needed something quick to fulfill the challenge and satisfy my creative juices.  Enter an ill fitted polka dot dress.

Essentially all I did was remove the shoulder pads, cut the dress from waist to hem, and remove some length.  I then wrapped the dress like a robe and secured it with a safety pin.  Voila!

I'm off to sleep a crazy day away!  Check out the original post for more pictures and detail!

SHIRT FIX: V for victory

I decided now is the time to "fix" a few of my v-neck shirts, originally men's v-neck. I love a good v-neck, but a men's v-neck isn't girly or very pretty. I'm not looking to show off my assets to the whole wide world, I just want the neckline to be girly and pretty. I found a few tutorials that explained creating a new neckline was an easy process. Well, I'll prove those tutorials wrong!  ;)  I can complicate any simple tutorial.

Simply Stripes

A simple refashion today...really an alteration of an oversized dress.

I just took in the side seams and added a couple of darts in the back to make it more fitted.

Just add a $2 necklace and that's it!  Super simple!

If you would like to see more pics and the simple process you can visit my blog, Second Chances By Susan.  Thanks!

how to make a skirt from trousers

Denim overalls are extremely fashionable lately.Who doesn't want to be fashionable? so when I found really nice looking denim overall in sh I was super happy but when I looked again at home I knew this fashion is not for me. Yup ... fashion is tough lover.
But still when you have sewing machine you can do something good from something ... not so good.
