Refashion Week |day 4| & a tribute!


I can't believe tomorrow is our last stop for this mini version of the Refashion Month Series. And of course I couldn't be out of all the fun and will join with a refashion of my own as well... just scroll down after checking today's guest project. 


She is Carla, and she blogs at Rita Pirolita. I will tell you a secret, when I discovered Carla's blog, I called her Rita for longer than I should, until I realised that wasn't her name. She sews for her kids, and when I look at things she created, I am not sure about how to describe her style, but I like it. Actually, as much as I like her girl's outfits, I have to say I really like what she sews for the boy. Carla is probably the funniest of us all, and I love her for this, we need more people like her. 


She's got me really curious about her project, because when asked for a teaser photo, she nailed it. If you can't wait to know what she made with the jeans above, just click here.


--- my own refashion now --- which is also a tribute --- 

And now that my guest is introduced it is time for me, and see what I did. I joined the ladies that sewed for the boys in their lives, and made a new shirt for my baby boy. But before I get into any details, let me tell you that this shirt is a small tribute to one of my favourite actors. He passed away, this exact day, seven years ago. His name? 



I wanted to sew something inspired in one of his characters and let me tell you, this wasn't easy. My favourites (and I haven't seen them all) were A Knight's Tale and Casanova, but I wanted to sew something practical, something that my kids needed (in this case, what my boy needed). I also kept going back and forth with the Joker character in Batman, but after all, I picked the very first movie I saw staring H. Ledger... 10 Things I Hate About You. I know, I know... he's got so many good movies and I am sewing from this one. It is a movie made for teens, and it is from the 90's, so, guess who was a teen back then?! Besides, the main characters, oh, they were the rebels!!! It had to be this one. 


Inspiration selected, I had to find something in my pile that would fit the challenge. Luckily for me, I had a-not-so-old-but-stained shirt from V. - sometimes I hate that I can't part with some pieces, sometimes I love it! It was the case this time. The shirt was stained with bleach on the front, but because S. is still so little, I was able to use the button plackets as they were. There's a little spot still, but oh well, it's fashion!


I re-used the top of the front and back (original) shirt and cut the sleeves from the lower part of the back, which means I was able to save the sleeves for a future project. I used a pattern from a Patrones magazine, and made a size 12, there were only 3 options (6 - 12 - 24M). It was so easy and quick to put together and I feel like I need this projects, that I can whip up when the baby sleeps or stays quiet beside me.

    1. eu gostava tantooooo dela que me custou, ficou ali, tipo, para alguma coisa há-de servir. O aspeto dela tb já era "meio velho" mesmo quando nova, por isso nas fotos parece pior, o único que tinha mesmo era as manchas de lexívia.
