This Week’s Sew Along: Floral and Geometric/Stripes

If you aren’t actually competing in Refashion Runway but you would still like to sew along with each challenge, we’d love to see your creations, too. Send your photos to me at and I’ll post them so we can all see what you’ve made. At the end of the season, one lucky sew along seamstress will win a copy of my book, The Refashion Handbook.

Hey, and look who sewed along with us this week!

It’s Carissa from Carissa Knits.

Carissa wowed us in Season Two with her amazing refashions and she’s back sewing along with us today. I love her colorful take on the floral and geometric/stripes challenge. Thanks for taking the time to sew along with us , Carissa! Check out her post here.

Next is Tory Sonstroem who sewed along with us this week, too. She
borrowed design concepts from Michelle Paganini’s current work with thrift
store button down shirts. And she’s looking forward to the gingham challenge next!

She started with these button down shirts.


And created this:


Great job Tory! Thanks for sewing along this week!


Brandy Whitfield sent us her sew along this week. Her tunic is made from the bottom of a t-shirt and the bottom of a dress. She’s only been refashioning for about a year.

Cute! Thanks for sewing along!


Delain Miller combined a shirt and a sweater for a whole new look.

Thanks Delain!
