Southwest Sew Along: Amy Smith

Amy Smith was brave to sew along with us on this season of Refashion Runway: Season Five. Thank you Amy!

Here is her version of the Southwest Challenge:

I have taken a rug from an op shop and refashioned it to create a Dolman Sleeve style Cardigan with a funky big Collar to show of some of those amazing patterns.  I then took one of the remnants and repeated the fabric in a panel on the skirt, along with the grey linen look trousers. I made a basic skirt with a flat front and back elastic gathered waist as a quick sew. I love that the skirt and cardigan both have the same design incorporated, but aren’t too matchy-matchy.  Modeled by my Gorgeous Daughter, and photobombed by Coffee – our 1 year old hen.

Thank you for joining us this season, Amy. I’m sure you’ve inspired more people to sew along with us next season. 🙂

Happy Sewing!

    This is the first year I followed and voted on the runway. All the contestants are definitely skilled, and even more so they are amazingly imaginative. Kudos to Amy for her work as well! I’ve thought of adding a panel to a skirt or top to make room for my larger size. I worried that it would be obvious that I needed to enlarge the item, but Amy proves that it can look like a design choice. (And her daughter is beautiful!)
