All this refashioning has left me with a bunch of scraps! Most of them are the cut off bottoms of dresses, like this one from Day 182:
Scraps are pretty terrific. There are all sorts of fun projects you can do to use them up. I loved the pattern on this fabric, and decided to turn that scrap into a pretty drapey top! :)
First, I put it on my dress form and pinned it on each side where I wanted the neck hole to be.
Then, I tacked the pinned parts down with a few quick stitches.
This could also be done by hand really quickly, too. :)
Now I have a pretty new top…perfect for a gorgeous 70 degree SC winter day! :) And no…this is not typical winter weather for us, but I’m definitely not complaining!
My new top was fine for the day, but by the time it was dark, temps plummeted into the “really cold” region. Not to worry! I made a nice cuppa green tea, and cozied up for a quiet night in with the Fella. :)
Cheers, friends! I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend!
