Turn a Top Into a Dress

I’m not a big fan of Stevie Nicks wardrobe, and that’s what the shirt on the left reminds me of. Peasant blouses are comfy but a little dated, so it’s cool that Megan saw the potential in this top. She added a “rawr” bottom and turned it into a stylish dress, which is way cuter than I could have ever imagined to do with it! If you are wondering how, pay a visit to Meg to find out.

Turn A Long Sleeve Shirt Into A Tank


This started as a long sleeve t-shirt – I can hardly believe it, because this striped fabric looks as though it was always meant to be a tank. I love the tutorial done by Jen because it’s very thorough, and you’ll be able to put together a tank of your very own in no time. Visit her to see how it was done.

Rescue An Old Striped Shirt

If you ask me “Amy, should a striped shirt ever been given to the Goodwill?” you’ll get a quick answer. No – you should always refashion it! Jenn did just that and selected a nautical theme with her fun, bright red anchor that she attached to the front of the stripey shirt. The red edging on the neckline and armholes just makes it. Don’t you think?

Basket Weave a Shirt

I have been obsessed with this shirt since I first saw it. From the front, plain t-shirt – but from the back – amazing basket weave! Um, me want basket weave shirt! I actually spotted it on Pinterest and thought it would be difficult, but then clicked through and realized that it wasn’t so hard after all. I could do this with short sleeve as well! I think I’ve found my next refashion project.
