In Stitches...

what could you make from clothes so damaged that
even a thrift store can't sell them?
a new year's eve dress, like this??!!!
well, if you are REFASHIONISTA , apparently you can make anything!




or should i say, what can you RE-MAKE anything...





this frumpy dress becomes...




an adorable tunic!

i think she is just amazing!
since i can't sew a stitch, i think that hemming
something is akin to creating fire! but she doesn't simply
hem...she rebuilds and re-sizes too! sheesh!
{the mere thought of all that cutting and pinning
makes my inner lazy girl go nearly apoplectic! ;}





but seriously!
from these scraps she had leftover from a previous "re-do"...




she made this top!
ingenious AND thrifty!
AND all for a good cause!
she is creating something every single day...
made from damaged clothing that several thrift stores
can't sell...
then she is giving the re-made items back to be sold...
all proceeds then go to charity!
wow!

go check out what a REFASHIONISTA can re-make in a year!

  6. I can only stand back in admiration - she's made some lovely outfits and I really like the blue top. Great that she gives the proceeds to charity too.
