Do you have a piece of clothing that needs a little revamping? Instead of throwing it out, add a bit of lace! There are so many different ways to refresh your wardrobe with just a little bit of altering. Here are some great free tutorials to upcycle and refashion those worn jeans or misfitting top.
Yesterday I posted a brief tutorial on how to make a fitted shirt from an over-sized one. This tutorial will demonstrate how refashion the shirt by making a ruffle bib front. You can make ruffles and a bib from any material; scraps from a large shirt, or scraps from a second shirt.
Supplies and Equipment:
- Shirt or shirt scraps
- sewing machine
- Matching threads
- Fabric scissors
I went through a brief stage of buying a few vintage dresses online. I still browse but I don’t really need another dress so I am refraining. I bought a lot of vintage dresses for less than $10 each – all in my size!
One dress in particular needed a little work. I thought it was cute if it was accessorized properly, but Marc really didn’t like it.
Here is the dress. It seems like all the vintage dresses I have bought have been sheer. Did people have slips in every color? Disregard the fact that you can clearly see my bra.
