The theme this week applies to the garment as well as the missing week #4.
In case you are wondering. My un-birthday went so-so. But the week prior and week since has been hell! (I’ll spare you the details.)
I would start this post off by showing you my “failed” Alice dress for week #4, but I only failed in time constraint. However the dress itself is still on the right track and will be finished and presented later, so I don’t want to spoil the surprise! But there will be a make up garment soon for the missed week #4.
So this week’s garment was actually not what I was planning on refashioning this week. This one is less of a “refashion” and more of a “save from a landfill!”
My sis gave me a bag of clothes for fixing, refashioning, and some she just didn’t know what to do with. One of the garments was a knitted top that had many popped stitches and large runs. I wasn’t sure I could fix it, but I set to work….
I surprised myself with how well I did at recovering all the damage! I thought it looked better with the belt than just thick and boxy like before. Like my new earrings? (It was a birthday present-so I still haven’t used ANY of the $260 USD budget!)
