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
