July: Refashion Month at House of Estrela

Not much has been going around this blog. I have been busy, as I have mentioned before, IT IS the blog that has been quite lifeless lately. 

Back in May I have told you about a few things I was working on... 
#1 - Party Favours - they are done now, will share after G.'s birthday party. 
#2 - Dress for G.'s birthday - done, will share after G.'s birthday party. 
#3 - Flamenco Dress for G. - done, will show pretty soon. 
#4 - Top Refashioning - still unfisnished. 
#5 - Blue dresses - both started, none finished. 
#6 - Flamenco Pants - done, will show as soon as possible. 
#7 - Dresses for sister and niece - not even started yet. 
I have to finish it all (the ones I haven't yet), until the end of the month (all but #4), and then I'll be more free to start thinking about something fun. And I have actually thought about it. I have been wanting to refashion/recycle a LOT of clothes items I have around the house. Things I no longer use, things V. no longer uses, things I have been given and things I bought but then didn't really like or dared to use in public. I guess I bought them for therapy!!! lol
But I won't go thinking TOO BIG because I know I might not make it, so I'll take it slowly and will challenge myself to accomplish every week, at least one refashion  project during July
I will try to chose a piece of clothing that I like and try to recreate it with the clothes I already have in the waiting pile. Making this I will be creating new clothes for me  or my girl; I will be following one of my 2012 resolutions; I will be making something that I love.
 So, why not? 


  1. good idea! I think I'll make that my goal for July, too. My up-cycle pile is growing and growing!

  2. I will be following your refashions!!! Maybe you can inspire me!!! =)
