Refashion Month 2016 Wrap Up


I absolutely have to thank deeply all the ladies that took part of this year's edition. I was such a lousy hostess, but they were there for me, and I can't thank them all enough. So please, visit them all if you haven't and show some love because they are worth it. That said, if you're just coming today, let me wrap it up for you. Usually this series take place all through July. This year though, life got pretty much in the way, but as I said thanks to the ladies I mentioned above, I could have it running for at least two weeks. 

Of course I enjoyed seeing what everyone did, or wraped up for us. Vicky had her daughter's help to refashion a long skirt, Joelle did an amazing transformations from men's underwear to boy's shirts, Stephanie upcycled some of her t-shirts.

Liz did this amazing job turning an adult sized hoodie into a child's romper. Michelle wraped up all the refashions she did in the past year, some are pretty impressive and Irene shared a very detailed tutorial on how to refashion a men's button up shirt into a fitted top for women.

Diana gave a new life to a dress that didn't fit her anymore. Heather turned a button up shirt into a skirt for her daughter. Meriel wrapped up a few of her refashions for us, and last but not least, Michelle did a whole outfit using a nightgown for her new top and pair of woven athletic style pants from her husband into pants for herself.

Did you decide already what your favorite was? I am having a hard time doing so. 

As for me, if you're not a regular, I'll tell you I usually commit to make at least one refashion per week for the time the series lasts, but this year though I stuggled not only with personal issues and lack of time, I also struggled with getting my machine to work properly. So, I did share three refashions in two weeks, which is good, but I actually only sewed one up this month. The other ones were made long before. 


It was already July 13th when I posted my first post of the month. Of course it was the kick off of this year's edition and I shared a simple way to upcycle a pair of jeans. I was part of the Desert Island themed Sew 20 tour, and of course I shared some refashioning, this time in swimsuits. And to finish, for the Summer Swimwer tour I refashioned a women's dress into a girl's shorts
