Over at Project Run and Play the third challenge is in full swing. This one is near and dear to my heart: Refashioning!
This comes so naturally to me. With a child who has growth issues, I have to alter clothing all the time. Her sister hands things down, but they are waaaay too big, so instead of holding on to them for another 6+ years when they would fit, I make them into things she can wear now.
I am also part of our local Buy Nothing Project, and love when things come up that appeal to me, Jim, or the girls (FOR FREE). Sometimes they just don’t fit the way I want. In steps…refashioning!
Anyhow, today I made a sweet tunic and leggings for Falafel.
I also wanted a little contrasting pop of color in a not-so-obvious way. So I added yellow pockets. I was watching Kung Fu Panda (don’t judge) at the time I came up with this outfit, which explains the color inspiration. That movie is so visually vibrant.
The leggings I made using two t-shirts (and the Go To Sew leggings pattern).
Oh yes…R is for REFASHION!
