Refashioning Fun!

  After finishing two simultaneous custom orders last week, I needed a little break from heavy sewing. So, I rummaged through my spring wardrobe for things to refashion! Here's what I came up with...

 I got the applique from a bridal gown (*shocked murmur amongst followers*) and decided to pop it on this tee.

I stitched some tiny pearls and rosettes to 'jazz' it up. 

This one was a simple rose... 

Not sure what I'm going to wear it with, but it was fun to make! 

This one was, by far, the most fun to make. I resized it by cinching in the side seams, and I stitched two rows of lace down the front. I then put a pearl trim over that to hide the seam join. 

Yes... very girly!

This is what used to be a frumpy black turtleneck. I chopped the offending neck off, then split the shirt down the middle. A little hemming and stitching later, and voila! A new spring cardigan!

Like the lace? I do.
