Refashion Runway: The Winner of the Maxi Skirt or Dress Challenge


What a great week full of amazing dresses!

Congratulations to the winner of this week’s dress challenge …

Sarah from Life is Beautiful.

And YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL in this AMAZING dress refashion!



Now on to the hard part again.

I just don’t even want to type these words, but we have to say “see you later” to the beautiful and talented Marisa from The Refash Stash today. 😦

Marisa has been so much fun to work with and to think she’s only been blogging for three months! I hope you will all go over and subscribe to her site so you can keep up with all of her amazing sewing projects. After all, she does “think outside the stitch”. (I love her tagline!)

And I also LOVE her Boho Chic Refashion and I know you will, too!

Let’s take a look:

“I started with two plain pieces of clothing. Really not bad as is, but come on this
is a Refashion competition!

First off, what is a Boho chic outfit without a. vest!? I’m going to have to say
I dismantled my faux suede blazer…

I added some character to my soon to be vest by cutting fringe and making triangle

I used the material from the sleeves and made a purse!

Then I dyed my dress and added some embellishments!”

    Oh no! I mean I’m happy I won this challenge but I’m sad to see Marisa go.

    I loved her maxi dress that she made from 3 shirts, I thought it was so cute and clever, I’m sad to see her go! She did a great job on the boho chic refashion too, love the fringe leather vest.

  2. I’m sad to go, but I am also so thankful I made it this far! It has been fun sewing with all you ladies! I wish you all the best of luck on the next challenges! And thanks so much to our wonderful judges and hostess!!! 🙂

    Oh, I love your refashion this week so much – the cutouts on the vest and the embellishments on the dress are my favourite parts of the wonderful whole! I’ve been following your creations since before the runway competition and will continue to do so. You have so much talent and so many good ideas, Marisa!

  4. Rachel says:

    I wish I was half this talented! I have followed your blog for years, and I was hoping to improve. I love all these ideas!

  5. Gema says:

    I love how you styled up your Boho Chic entry Marisa! Loving the little daisies in your hair, and the cute cut-outs in the waistcoat, just adorable! Sorry to see you go…but I’ll be sure to follow you on your refashioning journey from here on in!
