Refashion Challenge

This week over at Skirt Fixation the designers are focused on refashioning. For the sew along I decided to submit an outfit that was all refashioned, except for the shoes!


To begin there was the Polka dot top. This refashion was inspired by this top from ModCloth:



I will be providing the tutorial in a follow up post (UPDATE: Refashion Post Here) because it would make this one way too long, but it was actually fairly quick and easy and I am happy with the results. 

The sweater was just a quick snip and sew project. I simply cut the center of the sweater open and used bias tape to make a finished hem on both openings...viola, easy cardigan! 


The maternity jeans I am wearing were regular flared leg jeans that were way too long. I took off two inches from the hem and then made them into skinny jeans. And finally, I had some fabric samples that were given to me and I remade them into a small leather clutch. I will also show that one more in detail in a follow up post because I am running out of time to submit my link...yikes, gotta get going! 

The clutch was made out of these: 

I will follow up soon with tutorials :)
