It's been WAY too long since I have done a refashion. I have been so consumed with life and all of it's many demands on my time that I just haven't had the time to sew. In fact, I often wonder where did all the time go that I use to have to do all the things that I love to do? I honestly can't figure it out, but when I catch these time bandits, I am going to give them a good talking to!
I did this refashion a few months back, but I'm just finally getting around to posting it. I'm going to go ahead and assume you all are as time deprived as I am and just cut right to the chase.
This is a mens button up shirt with a sweet print.
These are a pair of my son's old blue jeans.
This is a pattern I used to help me construct a bodice for my refashion.
This is some of my tinkering ....
I cut these shapes out of the jeans and sewed two together, wrong sides together.
I fiddled around with them on the dress form to find a good neckline. (Front ^ &Back v)
I blended the denim neckline with the bodice D in the pattern pictured above and here is what I got ...
I see this with a cool, high waisted skirt. I didn't have one on hand, but I should make one ... you know .... when I have some free time. ;)
I washed it a few times to make the denim fray a bit on the edges.
I put a separating zipper in the back, but the denim neckline is sewn together.
I liked using the denim this way, but next time I think I will make the cut outs just a tad smaller all the way around.
I hope to have some more fun projects to share really soon.
As soon as I find the time.
