Refashion Runway: Halloween Sewalongs

Welcome to Refashion Runway: Halloween Sewalongs!

I think we are all in agreement that Molly needs to start her own blog, so we can keep up with all of her wonderful refashions.

This week, Molly made the perfect apron for her neighborhood Halloween Chili Feed.


“As you can see, I
found an orange knit dress (that had a few holes), as well as a short dress (that
had a shimmery “web-like” look to it).


I took the top off the dress for the bodice
of the apron, and sewed the straps together at the neck to go over my head. I used
the “spider web” fabric for the body, then added a strip of the orange (gathered) at
the bottom. Added the pocket, and orange straps which tie in back.

I will wear this
when making the pot of chili for Halloween night that we share with neighbors as we
greet the “trick or treaters.”-Molly


Sounds like she lives in a fun neighborhood!

Thanks for sewing along with us, Molly!


Jen, from Diary of a MadMama had a little bit of a Halloween dilemma this year, which she solved with a dose of refashioning. Way to go, Jen!


“My daughter has dance class during trick-or-treating time, and so she won’t
be able to go trick-or-treating. She will, however, be able to wear a
costume to dance class (as long as it doesn’t hinder her from dancing. She
wanted to go as a zombie, so I found an old costume I bought her a couple
of years ago (for 49-cents), that she had outgrown, and refashioned it into
a tutu. After a little hair and makeup, voilá, zombie complete!”-Jen

Deanna, from Wedding Dress Blue, has one very lucky daughter!


She started with, “a bridemaids’ dress and ended up with….Victorian Steampunk Halloween Fun!”-Deanna

    They’re all amazing, but that Victorian Steampunk Halloween dress is FANTASTIC. That hue of orange isn’t usually used in Steampunk, but it’s absolute perfection!! Each of these women are incredible!!
