Friend Friday: Refashioning

Tee: Hanes
Skirt: Target
Shoes: Steve Madden
Belt: Target
Earrings: Turkey

Today's visual Friend Friday is about refashioning, which is something I have only recently started doing. Well, I guess that's not entirely true because I've cut the necks out of a bunch of crew neck shirts for years.

Lately, though, I've been dabbling in hemming and I've got big plans to dye some stuff (I even have dye and rubber gloves on hand). Oh, and I took in this men's shirt so that it didn't fit me like a giant bag.

See? I got my instructions here and although I haven't quite gotten the technique, I think I can try it again.

As it is, I can still wear the shirt and not just as pajamas. Besides, any no sew trick is good in my book.

Oh, and speaking of DIY... I cut my hair. Just me, a pair of scissors and the bathroom mirror. It was scary as all get out, but I'm pleasantly surprised. Besides, it was so long, I was going CRAZY.


  1. The hair looks great. I've tried that a time or two with mixed results.

  2. Such an interesting pattern on your skirt - I really like it) Thank you so much for the link to the tutorial)

  3. No sew? That's what I like to hear!!

  4. Right? Since I don't have a sewing machine, no sew is my favorite.

  5. I'm hoping next time will be a little easier....
