Hi, I'm Stacey and I blog over at Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy Crafts. I'm so excited to be a part of Refashion Month. I love the idea of taking something less than stylish or worn out in a few places and remaking it into something fabulous. We've been living overseas in Europe where the thrift stores are more like outlets, so most of my previous refashions have come out of our closet. I've very excited to be moving back to America, where I can utilize the amazing thrift stores in our area.T-shirt Hoodie, Men's Dress Shirt to Kimono PJs, T-shirt to Pullover, Lumberjack Pants, Ninja Kit, Pillowcase R2D2 Costume
To make the new dress while keeping the nautical style, I simply cut directly above the drawstring.
Then I grabbed a ribbed tank, put it on inside out, marked where I wanted the tank to merge with the knit skirt, and cut 1/2 inch below this mark.
With right sides together, I pinned the tank and skirt together and sewed using a 1/2 inch seam.
And that's it! A quick and simple refashion that takes a too frumpy dress and transforms it into something comfortable and cute. Thank you for having me today! Feel free to stop by any time in our neighborhood.
