Been a bit quiet on the western front recently I know! After a month of posting daily, I took a week while you were all busy getting your refashion on 😉 BUT it’s time to start sharing YOUR makes for The Refashioners 2016 and maaaaaan are you lot pulling out all the stops for this challenge…here is just a small selection of what’s been popping up on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest so far…
Love this skirt from Vision Of Ashlar. Simple colour blocking and panelling, and totally wearable.
This military style jacket from Vera Luna is all kinds of good!! (Adult version anyone?)
Another clever and gorgeous make from Vera Luna
This stunning quilt from Skirt Fixation looks like a total labour of love!
Seriously love the concept of a denim “sweatshirt” and this one from Kate is a corker.
Just check out this pleated side kilt panel and buckle detail. Clever right??
Lady Sewalot is rocking this denim jumpsuit. Fact.
This dress from Carolyn is just gorgeous….and she made the denim shoes too!!!!
Sometimes, simple is oh so chic. Fantastic concept from Martiarti.
The Sewing Goatherd looks mighty pleased with her new wrap top from old jeans….and quite right too. Love it! And look….
She didn’t leave her little sister out . She scores a dress made from more old jeans!
Totally blown away by this one from Messy Essy Makes. That quilt pieced cube section is a thing of beauty and works perfectly with the panelling of the dress pattern.
Meggiepeg’s Mondrian inspired shift makes great use of the fabric and looks so relaxed and cool.
Can’t go far wrong with a denim kimono IMHO! Being made from rectangles of fabric makes a kimono a perfect solution to a jeans refashion.
The amount of work that has gone into this jacket by Fadanista is astonishing and what’s more, it’s gorgeous!
Susan’s jacket is deceptive. It looks so simple and classic, but there’s alot of though and detail gone into it when you take a closer look.
Here’s Elizabeth proving that jeans needn’t be all blue with her incredible trench coat!
There are so many awesome entries coming in. Here are some more of my faves from Instagram…
Not only that but I have been seeing some seriously intriguing “in progress/WIP” images appearing to. So I know there is SOOOO much more to come. Something about this challenge in particular seems to have struck a cord. And people are really embracing it and unleashing their creative brains on a larger scale than in previous years. So. Freakin. Exciting,
