Happy Sunday, Everybody! I hope yours is as delightfully relaxing as mine. :)
This week’s Reader ReFash comes from Jen over at Our Beautiful Messy Life (Isn’t that just a lovely name for a blog?).
She started with this two-piece dress she purchased from Etsy.
I took a two-piece dress I ordered online a few years ago (that has never really fit very well, I can be picky about fit) and turned it into two separate pieces. I also added some of my favorite fabrics to both pieces to make them a little more interesting and give them some print. I called it the “Two-Piece Disappointment Dress”.
Here’s the fabric she used:
I really like the retro vibe of this one!
And here’s what she made from it!
Jen, your wrist tattoo is adorable. :)
I really like what she did with those bits of printed fabric (I think I’ll try something similar soon).

Well done, Jen!
This week’s Reader ReFash comes from Raven!
We have been stuck in the snow and ice for days, luckily we had a pile of clothes to refash from the Goodwill Bins. This skirt was 89 cents per pound. Love the print and sequins, didn’t love the ink stains and the “one size fits most”. The waist band became the neckline, replaced the drawstring for ribbon, cut slits for the arms, took the skirt part of the dress in and added a belt. This one was super easy!
Check it out! :)
I should take some inspiration from Raven during this miserable cold weather and get out from under my blanket and get to refashioning instead! :)
Beautiful work, Raven!
Lots of you had questions about how Raven pulled this refashion off, so she sent me a (really cute) drawing to share with you that will hopefully clarify it a bit for ya. :)
This week’s Reader ReFash comes from Trish in New Jersey! It’s a good bit chilly there. I mean, that town will rip the bones from your back! It’s a suicide rap! She’s gotta get out while she’s young!
Sorry…too much Bruce Springtsteen at too young an age! New Jersey is actually quite lovely, I hear (They don’t call it the garden state for nothin’).
Anywho…Trish had these two coats:
Two Coats…both alike in dignity.
I’ve been seeing trenches with leather sleeves and have really wanted one but wasn’t willing to spend the money on another coat. I knew this would be a cool project for class but didn’t have the pieces until I raided my old clothes at my parents house.
My sister had a pleather jacket that she used to wear from Limited Too (just to give you an idea of how old that coat is) and I had an olive-ish trench that I just never wore. Fortunately my mind put the two together!
Isn’t this awesome?
It’s gorgeous from the back as well!
And here’s Trish in her gorgeous creation!
Awesome job, Trish!

Well done, Trish!
