Refashion Runway: Winner of the Halloween Challenge


“You’ve always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself.”

Well said, Glinda!

I have to say, the courageous and creative women who have been competing in Refashion Runway this season, have totally embraced what the Good Witch told Dorothy. They have all learned how to use their powers to transform the old and unwanted into something new and beautiful!

Are you a good witch or a bad witch

I’m pretty sure Susan, from Second Chances by Susan is a good witch. She used her powers for good this week and won the Halloween Challenge with this stunning refashioned witch costume.

Thank you so much, Susan, for sewing into the wee hours of the morning to bring us some incredible inspiration!

And remember:

Always match your pumps to your broom


Today, because I want to use MY powers for good, I’m sending all four of these wonderful women on to the next challenge: Winter White.

Stay tuned……………
