Ruth’s Reader ReFash!

Spa Day Dress
Windy Hill Dress

Happy Sunday everyone!  Your weekend is almost over.  :/  Have you savored it?  Have you really sucked all the marrow out of it?  Are you truly enjoying it as much as you could be?

I think Ruth probably is.  You see, she had this dress…


And what a dress it is!

After stalking your blog for a while, I decided to finally submit a refashion of my own! I’m an avid crafter and make a lot of my own clothes, so refashoining an existing garment was a bit challenging. I really enjoyed it!

Hmmmmn…I was wondering who that was up in my neighbor’s tree with binoculars.  Now I know!  :)  Go Ruth for taking on a new challenge with such a lovely result!

Le Front and Le Back!

Le Front and Le Back!

Now she has an adorable frock (and an adorable smile to boot!) to enjoy a  fab weekend in!

Do YOU have an awesome refashion you’d like to share?  Just shoot those before and afters to!  You might end up right here on my bloggy blog!  :)

    I love it Ruth. Did you have to sew up where you took the sleeves off to finish it off?

    She looks gorgeous and the print really works in the refashioned version!

    It is a great dress but would be better with maybe 3 inches added to the bottom to balance it a bit. Don’t you think?

    I love the refashioned version, such a great silhouette. The print works so much better than on the original.

    Wow! The “before” pic gal could be the mom of the “after” pic gal.
    Way to go Ruth! Super cute!

    So cute! I’m always amazed at how some “funky”/dated prints can end up looking so great once the items have been refashioned. Awesome vision!

    I just started following your blog Jilly. I started at the newest posts & worked my way backwards to day 1 (being a busy mom of 4 I think the amount of time I dedicated to finish it in 4 days drove my hubs crazy lol) I was hooked from the get go! I was amazed at your creativeness, upset for you when life flipped upside down, bummed out when you were sick, proud of you for plugging through tough times & keeping your promises & inspired which I think was the point of your blog, to inspire people to see the hidden treasures in things that others have cast aside. Good job sweet girl! I just wish SC wasn’t so far away as I feel we would be fast friends.
