I’m so glad we got one of these! Heather Lou’s take on the challenge is testament to the fact that you don’t need to completely dismantle a suit to transform it into something new…if the guts of it are good….work with it!
Simple changes can transform just as much as complete reconstructions and this longline sleeveless jacket/waistcoat/vest (Think I covered all linguistic bases there) is bang on trend and a great transitional piece…
Of course what appears to be simplistic on the surface often belies the techniques behind it…
So for more pics, techniques involved and details head over to Heather Lou’s blog !
Stay tuned. We have a few more of refashioning inspiration from our blogger line up coming your way courtesy of a phenomenal line up of stitchers.
After that….it will be over to you and there are some great entries starting to come through already! If you fancy getting your refashion on, but are in two minds about whether to enter this year’s community challenge;
- Check out our pinterest board for inspiration
- Check out the amazing prize package (yes you could win all that!)
- Go grab a suit and dive in!
….If you haven’t familiarised yourself with what the actual challenge is yet, essentially we want you to refashion an old, unworn or unloved suit! Simple as that! What counts as a suit you say? Definition here!
Man’s suit. Ladies suit. Doesn’t matter. Interpret how you see fit. If you’re breathing new life into a suit that would otherwise go unworn or be thrown away, THAT’S what counts.
BUT, if you want to be in with a chance of winning one of these amazing prize packages you’ll need to SHARE that refashion with us in one of the following ways:
- On Instagram: Share a pic using the hashtags #therefashioners2017 and #suitsyou
- On Facebook: There is a community board here where you can post your makes (You will need to request an invite to join)
Only entries shared via the above 2 methods will be entered into the competition. Closing date for entries is 31st October 2017 Midnight GMT.
Good luck!!! Get refashioning.
Oh and by the way…The Refashioners is going on the road this November!! If you fancy attending our very first “in person” workshop in London on 4th November….full deets here!!
