Hey you guys!
I’m super excited to share with you something I did last week. I’ve been into refashioning lately (this lady + her book are just huge inspiration sources for me!) and I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a sewing project.
I was out thrifting with my Nana (I’m finally off quarantine 😉 ) last week and came across this strapless dress at Goodwill. I don’t wear strapless dresses and this one wouldn’t have fit me anyways, but I loved the gingham navy/white pattern.
I’m a total sucker for blue + white and got to thinking… can I make a skirt out of it?
So I did. And it’s pretty much my new favorite skirt. 😂
The sewing part was easy. I pretty much just cut off the top part, hemmed the waist band, and fixed the elastic a bit. It already had elastic in it, so I *thankfully* did not have to add anything new.
I have been enjoying the June summer weather + needing some airier clothes, and this skirt is so light and breezy! I added a fake ‘wrap’ element to the right side of the skirt which I just love! 😍
The shirt was a birthday gift last year from my parents. I love this comfy tee and can I just say…. my parents are incredible dream supporters!! Uganda, Africa is where I am dreaming to go to be a missionary, and that is the country that is on the shirt. (Um… yeah it’s navy & white. #seriousweakness)
The shoes are from Amazon, and they are so perfect for summer! And I need to go repaint my toenails, haha. xD
Happy summer y’all! Go out and enjoy this weather… just don’t melt. 😉
HAVE YOU EVER REFASHIONED SOMETHING?
