Shannon shows us how

refashion dress we can turn worn but favourite clothing into something new – giving new life to old loved fabrics.

We all have tons of interesting materials at home that can be refashioned into something we want to wear and love again. Your favorite pair of jammies don’t need to be turned into cleaning rags or donated, why not use the much loved fabric to make something you are sure to wear … our creativity is a powerful thing that we can all use together to fight the effects of the economy and the environment.

So True! I am currently in a phase of making jumpers for my daughter in a variety of sizes from 18mths that fit her now, up to probably 2t or 3t. I am making them out of womens (and mens) button up dress shirts. That way I dont have to make buttonholes or sew on buttons, I make the front of the shirt the back of the dress! “Cheat cheat, cant be beat when you sew something so sweet!” I got the idea off the internet somewhere but I didnt like the way the pattern turned out so I just went off on my own and made some cute dresses! I also made her 2 pillow case dresses but rather than have tie shoulder straps I made them normal straps and sewed in a zipper!
