Refashion Month with Miss Castelinhos

Diana, from Miss Castelinhos is a mom of two boys, and she's been a great inspiration to me when it comes to sewing for boys, of course. But she's been sewing for herself as well. I first saw her on a Titchy Threads pattern group, and started following right away. It is a pleasure for me, to welcome Diana for the first time here, for the series. Her idea is also great to use scraps from previous refashions - something I do a lot. Enjoy!


My husband is a big t-shirt hoarder (don't let him see this!), so every now and then, I get a big pile of old ones. Usually I put them away and forget about them (silly me, I know!), until a pattern perfect for knits, comes along.

I know what you must be thinking... "Three t-shirts! So much fabric... She must have done something big!"... Don't get too excited! I needed three different colours, but don't worry, there's plenty left for more and I manage to save those cute prints! I recently got a chance to test a new pattern from Made It Patterns, soon to be released, as part of the new summer collection, inspired by the Japanese art form of Origami. I wanted to have fun with this pattern, that's why I chose such bold colours and it works great on a 2 year old!

I don't make refashions that often, because usually it doesn't work out as well as I imagine it, but when it does, it slowly grows on me.

I love how it turned out! As if there wasn't enough colour, I still added a contrasting zipper. P-E-R-F-E-C-T! Don't forget to come back and check out the other bloggers. Such talented ladies... can't wait to see what they're up to! Thanks so much for having me Magda!

  3. Love this polo shirt!! Very clever, to use the t-shirts as it's not always easy to find the right knits ;-)
