Jani’s ReFashion Show Creation!

Jani is a gorgeous young woman who deserves a sassy dress!  Unfortunately, all I had on hand was this:

Boo.  :(

Boo. :(

That dark teal is perfect for Jani’s complexion,  But the dress itself is just too nightgowny and not a good fit.  :/

I needed to go way outside the box for this one, folks!  I turned the dress upside down, cut off the bodice, added a few seams, and now….

BAM!

BAM!

I hate to play favorites, but I think this is the best dress from the ReFashion show at SHE Greenville!  :)  Jani looks awesome in it and I think it really suits her and her personality!  :)

But of course, all of my friends looked amazing and did a fabulous job.  I can’t thank them enough for helping me!  They’re all pretty terrific!

Love these ladies!

Love these ladies!

Cheers!

Krystal’s ReFashion Show Creation!

Krystal is yet another of my fabulous friends who was awesome enough to model for my SHE Greenville show.   We go waaaay back to the days when we worked together at Starbucks!

I love this dress with its butterfly collar.  it only cost me one little dollar!  :)

I ripped out that HUGE collar, restitched the neckline, gave it a V, ripped off the sleeves, restitched the arm holes, took the whole thing in a bit, raised the hem and gave her new dress a sash!

Awkward Lighting.  Lovely lady!  :)

I like the pale blue and pastel tone of this dress with Krystal’s blonde hair.  :)  Aren’t I lucky to be friends with all of these supermodels?  :)

Jamey’s ReFashion Show Creation!

This muumuu I found for Jamey’s SHE Greenville refash wasn’t very attractive at first.  :/

Harumph.

Harumph.

Buuuuut…after I dyed it, removed the pockets, took it in, raised them hem, made a sash from the scraps, and reattached one of the pockets, It’s quite the cute summer frock!  :)

A much happier Jamey!  :)

Erin’s ReFashion Show Creation!

Besides being an amazing friend, Erin is also a phenomenally good sport!  When I asked her to toss on this dress for her refashion for SHE Greenville, she didn’t even flinch!

But she doesn't look completely thrilled, either.

This dress is incredibly 80s, BUT I loved that funky triangle cut-out thing across the chest.  Also, being 100% cotton is a total plus for dealing with the SC heat!

To get this dress nice & modernized, I ripped out the shoulder pads and dyed it to a darker hue.  Then, I took the whole thing in and raised the hem.  For my final trick, I cut a bit of length off the sleeves and sewed them into cuffs.

I think Erin can wear this dress in public grimace-free now!  :)

A fab refash for a fab friend!  :)

Okay!  I can’t take it anymore!  I want to share my refashions from my recent trip to Austin, TX (just got back today!), so be on the lookout for a BUNCH of posts tomorrow from my ReFashion Show, so I can get to sharing all my out-of-state adventures!  :)

Cheers!

Meghan’s ReFashion Show Creation!

One of the Great Fashion Truths is that redheads look fabulous in green!  :)

Except here, where this particular redhead looks like a business lady from the 1980s.

For this refashion, I ripped out the sleeves and restitched the arm holes.  Then, I raised the hem and made the button-up back of this dress the new button-up front!  I ruched the shoulders (which you totally can’t see in the pics).  Then I stitched the neckline into more pleasing V, and just like that, Meghan’s dress was brought into this decade for SHE Greenville!

Peplums are still in, so this one was allowed to stay!  :)

Some of you might remember Meghan from my first ReFashion Show (she’s an experienced model at this point!).  :)  You can see that I like putting her in green.  :)
