Crawfish Fest Top

Wannabe Wednesday: "Noten" Wrong With a No-Sew Maxi Skirt
ReFashed in Philly Dress

Hey Guys!  Remember when I refashioned this 2 piecer here

Remember me?
Remember me?

…into this 1 piecer here?

I remember it just like it was a few weeks ago!

Remember how I had a few leftovers?

What will happen to that bottom scrap!?!  I must know!!!!
What will happen to that bottom scrap and the jacket thingy!?! I must know!!!!

Today you get to see what happened to the rest of it!  🙂

I played with the leftover fabric, and really didn’t see any way to make a decent dress in a reasonable amount of time, so I opted to make a top instead!

First, I took that leftover bottom scrap and hemmed the raw edge.

Pinned!
Pinned!
No longer in the raw!
No longer in the raw!

Then, I put it on my dress form and pinned it to where it would be nice and fitted under the arms and allll the way down!

It looks like a fin!

Then, I stitched this down.

Whirrrrrr!!!!
Whirrrrrr!!!!

I’m not done!  I liked the collar from the jacket, and decided to use it to make my top into a cute halter!

I cut it off, then stitched a couple of lines of zigzag stitches to keep it from fraying.

First you zig, then you zag!
First you zig, then you zag!

I pinned it around the neck of my dress form to the front of my new top, like so:

So far, so good!
So far, so good!

Then I stitched those two ends down!

Just about finished!
Just about finished!

After a quick press, I was done!  Check out Part II of this refashion!

Fun & Flowy!

I styled my new top with a pair of cutoff paint-splattered khaki shorts and a pair of bronze gladiator sandals.

And here’s the back!

Gaze into my pallor!

Q: If a refashion is made but is never seen in public, does it make a sound (Just go with it)?

A:  I think not!  I wore my new top to the annual Rosewood Crawfish Festival!  This is a super-fun event that my friends and I look forward to every year! 🙂

My new bff!
