I’ve always loved Liz’s refashions. Always classy and on point ; and this one is no exception…
A sleek sophisticated jumpsuit with a fun and subtly sexy back detail. That split at the back? That’s the original back vent of the jacket right there. Clever no?!I seriously love this. If you’ve got to dress for something formalish (it’s a word…..now) like an interview or business meeting; what a great alternative/twist on a boring suit !
If you’re intimidated by the thought of refashioning something as intricately constructed and complex as a suit, don’t be! At the end of the day, it’s all just fabric! Liz has a very intuitive approach to her refashions and a knack for making you feel, “ok! I could do that!” She’s put together a full step by step video tutorial for this refashion. Check it out here!
Stay tuned. We have a whole month of refashioning inspiration coming your way courtesy of a phenomenal line up of stitchers.
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.
