back to sewing

whoa. after almost a month away from my machine i finally made a couple things. nothing spectacular, but it feels oh. so. good.

it's all about refashioning during at least july and august, so i'm trying to reset my creative thinking and really enjoying the extra challenges that come with it.

here's what i've done so far...

an old skirt of mine which now enjoys a new life as a cute airy summer dress for joon.

this one doesn't even really count because all i did was shorten a dress into a skirt. but i'm so excited about every minute of sewing i get done and thrilled to have a cute new summer top. AND most importantly this piece of cloth is no longer sitting at the bottom of a closet but actually getting used! what a concept.

super comfy shirt i bought on sale. loved the shirt but hated the print. now the print is hidden under ikea cotton and rig rag and i love how it turned out.

woohoo! now i really hope i can get some more done tomorrow before dave disappears for a weekend of band fun.

Cute shirts and dress.

I just did an awesome refashioning on a thrift store find if you would like to come see it.
