Refashion Runway: Emerald Sew Alongs

Molly, who has sewn costumes for years,  just recently jumped out of her pattern box to join the refashion world. Her husband accuses her of being addicted to repurposing. Hmmmmmm…….(Looking up and whistling) I wouldn’t know anything about THAT…. 😉

 Well, I’d just like to say, Welcome to Molly and I’ll let you know when the next Refashion Anonymous meeting is, because I’m pretty sure, the meeting will be at my house. The meetings will go something like this: (Serious face)”My name is Beth and I’m a refashion addict.” (Face lights up) But just look at this horrendous sweater that could be made into a gorgeous hat and a warm pair of mittens. And this colorful tablecloth that needs to be a dress. And this old skirt that is begging to be a dress.” It’ll be fun!

Here is Molly’s version of the Emerald Challenge and I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of her in the future.


“Took a pair of green capris I found, as well as a royal blue dress, and made numerous changes. Swapped panels along the sides, removed original stand-up collar, removed sleeves, made bias binding to trim armholes, shortened dress and took in sides to fit, then added the triangular accents to front, and new buttons that have a blue and green shimmer to them. Enjoyed the project, and love the new dress!”- Molly


Your new addiction looks great on you, Molly!



Here are a couple more addicts…….I mean refashionistas sewing along with us this week……

Eira joined us again with her version of the Emerald Challenge. You can see her process on Hoffi Coffi.


Super cute transformation, Eira!!! Thanks for sewing along!



Here’s our friend, Jen from Diary of a Mad Mama with a “twofer”. Not only did she refashion an old emerald jacket, but it’s even a cute peplum. You can see her entire process here.


Thanks, Jen, you look great, as usual!!

    Beth, maybe it is just me but I can’t get to the new voting place on your web-site. Also, a person could vote twice on last weeks refashions. Karen (Chasing the Crown)

    All great re-fashions. I’m a teeny bit partial toward Molly’s refashion — innovative with the color blocking. Great job!

  5. all good as usual…but, Molly has a knack for sure!

    Oh my these are fabulous! That first colour blocked dress from the top and pants is just beautiful!

  7. Mikayla says:

    I really love this blog! I like seeing new things and ideas. Wish I could show one of my refashions in the days to come….I can say I’m an addict (in sewing) too! Thank you Ma’am Beth!

  8. Three great refashions but I am going for the little skirt by Eira for taking something so dated and bringing it bang up to date.

  9. Susan Luke says:
