A Few More Gingham Sew Alongs

We have another celebrity sewing along with us this week!

Susan, from Second Chances by Susan, was the winner of Season Two of Refashion Runway and I am seriously in love with Susan’s gingham dress refashion!

So simple, yet so dramatic!

Thanks for sharing with us, Susan!


Tory Sonstroem sewed along with us again this week. She has inspired me to make some gingham bias tape. (You can find out how to make your own bias tape here.)

So cute, Tory! Thanks for sharing with us!



Brandy Whitfield sewed along with us this week, too. She told me this was a difficult challenge for her, but she stepped out of her box and completed it anyway.

Thanks, Brandy!


If you are sewing along with the Refashion Runway challenges but aren’t competing as a contestant, you can still send your pictures to me at bhunting@eoni.com and I’ll post them. We love seeing what you are creating, too. At the end of the competition, I’ll send a copy of my book, The Refashion Handbook to one lucky person who sewed along with us this season.

The Gingham Challenge voting ends tomorrow night at midnight. If you haven’t had a chance to vote for your favorite yet, click HERE.

    Love Susan’s dress, really nice, well done. Written details of explanation was helpful. For me, I would have kept the long waist.

    Love, love, LOVE Susan’s creation. All the sew alongs are terrific. Wow.

  3. All the sewalongs are fabulous but that first dress? Yep, I had that one in the 80’s so I think it looks fantastic!

    Tory’s dress kind of looks like a smiley face to me! So cute!
