DIY Striped Dress Refashion

Sometimes the clothes we have just need a little “umph” or help. This dress in her closet from the nineties totally gets brought into trend with a little shave here and there from the sewing machine! Love that it’s knit too and that makes it comfy to wear!

What can be easier … shorts from pants! You don’t even have to sew, but the rolled cuff stays better if you do. Auna shows you how to shorten pants — to just the right length for your taste and your figure!

Drop Cloth Flags

I don’t like buying flags. I don’t dislike flags at all — I just think most of the ones you can buy are cheap-looking!

Sue had the brilliant idea of printing your own flags on drop cloths. I love the vintage, tactile look of these flags — and you can make them, too! She shows you just what to do.
