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…..er….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!!
If you haven’t had a chance to vote for your favorite Refashion Runway: Season Two Redesigner, there’s still time!! You have until midnight on Friday to vote. The winner will be announced on Saturday, October 5.
For more refashion inspiration:
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)
The links seem to be working fine on this end. I hope you’ll try again and see if it works this time. Here is the link just in case:
Also, it does look like you can vote twice, but when you click the vote button again, check the box, it should tell you, “Thanks, we already counted your vote”. Please let me know if this isn’t the case and I’ll check it out.
Those transformations are amazing! (Didn’t have trouble voting on your site.)
I’m glad it worked for you, Anny! Thanks for voting!!!!
really nice blog 🙂 Keep doing so!
Don’t mind checking out my italian fashion blog 🙂 !
Your blog is beautiful, as are you!!!!
All great re-fashions. I’m a teeny bit partial toward Molly’s refashion — innovative with the color blocking. Great job!
Thanks for your kind comments!!
all good as usual…but, Molly has a knack for sure!
I’m so glad Molly has joined the refashion world. I’m looking forward to seeing more of her creations!!!
Oh my these are fabulous! That first colour blocked dress from the top and pants is just beautiful!
I really thought so, too!! Molly definitely has the knack!!
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!
I’d love to see one of your refashions!!!
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.
I really liked how she styled the skirt, too!
All adorable refashions! Great job ladies!!
And yours as well!!!
I like all of these so much – such talent and good ideas! I chuckled at your Refashion Anonymous meeting confession 🙂
I was hoping someone would appreciate that. 🙂 I was crackin’ myself up as I was writing that.
Simply gorgeous! Her work is amazing. I always enjoy this competition and all the cool refashions I get to see!!
Thanks for your sweet comments as always, Kelli!
