Refashioning "first try".. Maroon Bow Dress

Refashioning is taking an unused or old piece of clothing and creating something new out of it. This was my first go at refashioning. I got inspired by a blog called MADE
I wondered if I could do these amazing things myself. Of couse I love a challenge and got started right away. I grabbed a shirt out of my rummage pile that I knew would work perfect for my first try.


It was too short on me, and I had gotten it at a thift store in the first place. It had a cute pattern of little bows on it, very appropriate for a little girl's dress so I decided to go for it, and turned it into this.


Not bad for my first try. I made some mistakes and learned some lessons. One lesson I learned was to fit it on before I cut. I ended up getting it a bit too small and could have fixed it if I hadn't cut the extra fabric off already. She liked it, and honestly if nothing else she has some new PJ's for summer.
