Then one day while perusing Pinterest, I stumbled across Liz and her blog, Cotton and Curls and totally fell in love with her blog. I started pinning her refashioning tutorials, and they just kept coming until I had to create a board just for refashions. I spent hours reading old posts. I love it when you find a blog like that. If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, go do it. Right now, I’ll wait….
See?! Pretty awesome, right?
So, one of my favorite refashions was her men’s dress shirt refashion. It looked amazing but easy enough that I could pull it off with my minimal skills and lack-luster sewing machine.
So I started with one of hubby’s old shirts…
(My lovely helpers jumped in the picture at the least minute.)
And ended with this…
A nice loose summery blouse. It looked great belted and paired with dark denim. However, by the end of the day (when I finally have someone home capable of taking a picture of me), it was a mess from wrangling kiddos all day. But trust me it’s pretty awesome. :)
The shoulders were a little wide on my shirt so I added this pleat detailing to bring them in a little.
I really love it and can’t wait to do more of Liz’s refashion ideas. In fact, I might just make a few more of these!
P.S. If you love Liz’s refashions check out this week’s theme…
So far it’s pretty cool, I just might try it myself. :)
