O Happy Rainy Day! In the wee hours of this morning, a good deluge of rain FINALLY arrived. It's been so dry here that fire risks are high, lawns are brown and water restrictions have started tightening down. So, I am sure there are a lot of smiles this morning for the rain. The forecast said there won't be that much rain then we'll go back to more sun and heat. In the meantime, we are grateful for what rain we can get! So, that was the weather and happiness report for you!
I've done some refashioning of garments I've made but not worn much. The most recent make was my Robe Aubepine which you can see here and here. Here's a before photo.
My next refashion is the Schoolhouse Tunic I made last fall. I tried to work a v-neck in which I ended up not liking. So once again, more taking something apart. I ended up tracing the neckline from the Wiksten tank (I think) and I like this a whole lot better. The downside is that with my taking the garment apart and then putting it back together, I've lost some seam allowance so it is a bit snug in the arms especially. I may end up passing it onto a friend.
last year. I just found I wasn't wearing the previous version much and luckily I had some left over fabric I could piece together for the back. This is, of course, another Scout tee!
This whole refashioning or re-making a garment was totally inspired by seeing the work of other bloggers. It's good to know there are ways to get the most out of every garment made.
Have you done much refashioning of your garments?
Have a lovely weekend!
