|day 30| Refashion Month Guest: Stacey from Boy Oh Boy, Oh Boy Crafts

Yes, technically I know it is the 31st already, my own fault that I couldn't bring it sooner to you. Today, the last guest from this series is Stacey from Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy Crafts! she's been one of my favourite bloggers for a while. She's a very talented mom of three! Go there and check for yourself!

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.
Here are a few of the refashions I've done this past year:  T-shirt Hoodie, Men's Dress Shirt to Kimono PJsT-shirt to Pullover, Lumberjack Pants, Ninja Kit, Pillowcase R2D2 Costume

Today, I'm sharing a super simple tutorial for changing an ill fitting maxi dress.  I've had this strapless maxi dress for a few years now and never wear it.  I had ordered it on-line and should have returned it.  It was just not flattering for my body.  Too much bulk on the top and who wants to go around wearing a strapless bra when they're wearing a comfy knit dress? 



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.
