Well the ladies have done it again!! We have a another tie for first place in the button challenge. You all loved Carissa’s handmade buttons from tree branches and her amazing dress transformation.
And you all loved Susan’s nautical look and the crazy cool bag she made.
But, on to the hardest part (sniff, sniff), I’m so sad to say we have to say good-bye to Miche this week. I always love her fun, youthful vibe and her creative take on all the challenges.
But, we aren’t going to send her home without some nice prizes though. Nosirreebob.
She’ll get 15 free sewing patterns from Lekala…
…and a free class of her choice from Annie’s Online Classes.
Let’s see what treat Miche had in store for us with the tunic challenge this week:
“I found this dress a few weeks ago at Goodwill, and fell in love with the
pattern. I normally don’t pick busy patterns, but something about this
dress stood out to me. For the challenge this week I took it in a little on
the sides and in the back to create a more flattering fit. I also chopped
it to tunic length and after removing the elastic from the arms, used the
extra fabric from to create bell sleeves.
I’ve been obsessed with flared sleeves for..let’s just say awhile. If I
come across something with belled sleeves in a store it’s pretty difficult
for me to pass on so I thought it’d be a fun challenge for me this week –
and man, a challenge it was.
I’m not sure if it was the fabric, or just my lack of experience or
knowledge in how to craft those beautifully shaped sleeves but I struggled
a bit to get the right shape. I had to take them off and put them back on a
few times,so I guess it’s good thing I recently replaced my seam ripper. :)”
Thank you so much Miche for being a part of Refashion Runway again. You are always an All Star in my book!!!
