As I mentioned, I am inspired by the Refashionista. I decided to refashion one ill-fitting or outdated garment each week to wear. Week one coincided with the Fourth of July. Two summers ago on July fourth, I wore this shirt. It is now too large for me (yaay!) but it is quite festive for the 4th. Okay, whatever... it was the first no-sew refashion I thought of when I was digging through my tub of clothes that don't fit properly.
I found a great pin (that now I can't locate with a good link - grrr) that showed how to make a tee shirt into a halter top. It just involved a few snips here and there, and it was done. I also made a tee shirt into a fringed scarf, using this tutorial.
This is early in my crafty process, so don't be frustrated with my lack of step-by-step pictures. Here's a picture of the piece I cut out of the back of my tee shirt to make it a halter, though. I know, I fail. :-/
I DIDN'T fail at the finished product, though! The scarf and top worked great, and I wore a tank top underneath for modesty's sake - we were going to a cookout with friends from church, and I didn't want to be displaying too much skin.
I'm late posting this blog, so I'll be posting Week 2's project in the next couple days that I wore to church this morning. I am so excited to be actually reusing clothes that I thought were gone for good!
