News from the Editors

We're looking for a few good refashioners to join the editing team -- are you one?!? We need to fill a few daily positions as well as get someone to take over as Instagram Editor. It shouldn't take too much time away from your refashioning once you complete a brief (and fun!) training session with one or more of the current editors. Just think -- you can help shape the future of this blog! If you are interested in learning more, please drop a line to us at refashioncoop@ gmail.com with 'Editor Info Please' in the subject line. We're looking forward to hearing from you!

Dress to Cami and Scarf

I've had this dress hanging in my closet for a little while now waiting to be chopped up. I haven't had much time for sewing recently, so I needed a quick fix.

Navy Dress Refashion

I cut off the skirt, about an inch below the bottom of the zipper. I hemmed the raw edges and shortened the straps a bit to pull the front up and cover my bra better. And with that I had a great new cami...
