    Rescuing shoes: Work in progress…..aahhhh shoes! These shoes are pretty comfy, but sadly the vinyl wasn’t doing so well in all places. So add in the buttons & bring in some more shoe mileage

    Shoe refashion: These shoes were a great opshop score, hardly worn. But I wasn’t a big fan of the original bow. So I added some eyelets so that shoe accessories could be added. I had these large pins in my stash, adding some chain & beads. The great thing is I can change out the accessories in future

    Fun projects on the job: There are times when I save up fun jobs up my sleeve for when I have a quieter day. This afternoon was one of those moments. After grabbing some supplies from The Reject Shop & My Value, I set about creating an eye catching Easter outfit for the centre. I didn’t have much of a plan, rather gradually pulled it together. There’ll be a bit of tweaking tomorrow, but so far I’m quite happy with it.

    Peppermint & polka dots: Continuing on with my focus on ‘frugal fashion’, I bought this little t-shirt (emphasis on little!) on sale at Best & Less for just $3 (you’ve gotta love a bargain.
I’d seen some great ideas on Pinterest for refashions & got all inspired. Plus this polka dot chiffon had been in my fabric stash for awhile just waiting for the right project (it hardly used any so I have heaps for a future project)
So I started with the t-shirt, comparing it with a shirt that I liked the fit of, I got a rough idea of how much I needed to add in. I cut off the shoulder seam & continued down the sleeve. Then I added in a strip of the chiffon, finished the edges & topstitched it in place. I then cut the back open & added in a larger panel of chiffon. Once the panel was in place, I stitched in some pleats to encourage a draped feel. I was going to leave it there-but it didn’t feel finished yet. So I added a collar, using some black stretch recycled from an old dress to back it. After fiddling with the collar to figure out the best way to attach it, I folded over the binding & stitched it in place.
Can’t wait to wear this, I think it’s going to be a great addition to the work wardrobe
