My newest addiction is to refashion old clothes in my closet to something new to wear. For this upcycle I took 2 shirts that I've had for about 2 years each, cut them sewed them together and I now have a new summer dress to wear to work or out to dinner.
I removed the band at the bottom of the shirt by using my seam ripper. I'm planning to make a belt from the piece.
Here's the bottom of the shirt without the band.
I cut the top of the shirt right under the arm hole to use for the bottom of my new dress.
Here is the finished product. Now I have a new dress that I can wear to the office with a cute pair of shoes. I love it.
Welcome to my little corner of blogland coming to you from Western Pennsylvania also known as Steeler Country. My name is Geri, I am the youngest of 6 and I refer to myself as Sister Number 5. I love being a wife, mother and grandmother to one beautiful little girl. My true passion in life is creating new ways to use old things. I will repurpose everything and anything I can find. I love yard sales, thrift stores, consignment stores and boating. Relax, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy reading my blog. Hopefully I can inspire you to remake something in your house.
