Refashions and Designing

I've been doing a lot of refashioning lately. Buy good quality clothes at the thrift store (usually $2 or $3) and take it home, cut it up, add another garment to it and some lace and there you go - a totally awesome 'new' thing! And that's fun - but you know what's even more fun? Designing!

I love linen. I love to sew it, play with it, and now - design with it :) I had this idea for a top, and piece by piece, I put it together. Here it is on the dress form, and then - on a person! lol The dress form just doesn't do much for it!


I didn't make the blouse, just the linen top.

Well, yeah it's cute, but... look at this! :)


Isn't she beautiful? My niece. Then she says, "I would totally wear this, but not with the blouse under it." And she was right!



What do you think? Would you wear this? I wouldn't, I think it's too young for me, but I really do like it! :) There will be some refashion pictures coming up on the next post!
