Day 20: Croch-hey! top

Day 21: I See Right Through You Top
Day 19: Silk Cargo Pants to Skirt Refashion

I don’t quite understand the thought process behind the Summer Sweater (aren’t we all sweating enough already?), but that’s what I’ve chosen to rock today.  🙂  Of course, it wasn’t very rockin’ when I first tried it on.

Oh dear.

I decided to take this top in to make it very fitted through the waist and hips, and fuller at the top.

I pinned!

About to perform some much-needed lipo!

Then, I stitched it all up!

Whirrrrrrr!

I actually had to do this a few times to get it snug enough.  No worries!  It’s better to have to take something in a bit more than unpick all of your stitching to make it bigger!

I wasn’t feeling that neckline, so made it into a more pleasing V.

Le Snip!

Gimme a V!

I lopped off all the excess material (which there was quite a bit of), and was all done!

Tucked in to one of my favorite skirts!

Tucked out, so you can actually see what I did. 🙂

Welcome to the Jungle!

I paired my new sweater with a light crocheted hat to give a bit of a vintage feel, as well as to hide my bad hair day from the world.

Like the hat? When I go crochet, I go all the way! 🙂

 Cheers!

  1. Beautiful! Love the refashion… you really saved that sweater! I think I would have thrown it out! Love the hat as well.

  2. Very cute outfit. It just occured to me how hillarious it would be if someone looked at the tag of one of your 3x refashions and said, hey, wait a minute, this can’t be the right size!
