Refashion Series: A Dress For The Princess

Follow up post from the McCall’s pattern sale.

Written on 8/18/13:
Back in 2010, I was an active volunteer in the church that I used to go. Needless to say, I really have no need for the shirt now. I consulted with my princess on how she wants the red shirt to become. She advised that she wanted the shirt into a dress, logo and all.

8/19/13: My daughter was getting ready and she saw the red dress. She was really excited. It’s going to be washed tonight and hopefully can be worn tomorrow. Before I left for work, I asked her what she wants the other Awana shirt to become the same as the red dress.

Refashion Series: What To Wear During Sunday Service

Okay, I didn’t google enough before I started Refashion Friday. I hope I didn’t infringe on any copyright. I thought it would be cool if my daughter wears a refashioned piece to school on a Friday. Anyway, I’m changing that to Sundays. Instead, my daughter or me will be wearing a refashioned piece on Sunday when we go to the 5pm service.

This was the before pieces….


It works for now. There is a second part to this refashion. And no…I didnt get interrupted, rather I took my babes out to see a movie then went for a swim that and I ran out of thread.

Until then,

Refashion Series: The Birth of Refashion Fridays

Here’s the update from the last post. I finally had an hour to spare to finish putting these together. My daughter was so excited that she gave me the tightest hug. After that, she picked the next outgrown dress, and told me what she wants made out of it!

It’s almost back to school, so I figured, I should start combing through the suitcase, and bags of clothes and make something out of it and post it on Fridays. I’m going to have my daughter wear a refashioned outfit on a Friday, granted if I made an outfit by Thursday night.

I’m calling it Refashion Fridays.

Hopefully, I can start refashioning for me too. It’s just so much more fun and easier to make something for her.

Refashion Series: Preview

Well, I did it. I am working on the re-fashion series. I wanted to start right when school was over, but better late than never. I must tell you – that like almost all of my post—-I wasn’t planning on this particular pieces to be refashioned first.
Last night, I was looking at this dress. This is from when my daughter is about 4-5 yrs old.  I didn’t even know why I saved it. It had stains all over. Today, my gut was telling me to just go for it. I found this shirt @ Walmart for $3.00, got myself a cutting board, seam ripper, and red thread. I’ve already cut the dress off, just needed to put it together.No- it won’t be done on time for the fireworks show tonight, but it’s a summer outfit none the less… I have to prepare for our picnic now. I’m posting the images as “insurance” that I follow through with this.

Until then,
