Refashion Runway: Copycat Sewalong

Wait ’til you see THIS Refashion Runway “Copycat Sewalong”!

You’re gonna LOVE it!!

Deanna from Wedding Dress Blue was wondering if copying “Barbie’s” style counted. I say a resounding YES to that!!!


I mean seriously, how cute is Barbie!!!

Deanna went from this shirt given to her by a friend:


To this amazing dress for her daughter:




I say Deanna deserves a big round of applause for sewing along with us this week.

    I made a sew-along this week too, but un unfortunate series of events left me unable to send you a picture, lol. Maybe I will email it to you tomorrow even though it’s too late just to be able to show it off to you!

    Btw, I am loving the barbie outfit! I look at it and picture drinking espresso and eating pain-au-chocolat in Paris in the morning! 🙂

  12. Thank you all for your kind words. It is fun to sew for my real-life Barbie. I don’t have a summer dress challenge idea. Yet. Heading out to a few yard sales this morning…maybe I’ll find something. Thanks to our Renegade Seamstress for the encouragement.
