A Fruity Refashion

I picked up this 2 piece number because of the fun fruit pattern!

Oh I know it’s a hot look for me! 

I brought it home and upon further inspection I noticed something pretty cool… 

 Exibit A: The use of pinking sheers! Someone had made this outfit!

So let’s refashion this refashion!

Let the biggest let down of my refashions begin! 1st I tried making the jacket into a crop jacket to wear with a solid t-shirt or tank top. Yep no matter how I pinned and sewed it kept turning out like a crooked blob. It was cropped alright but I wasn’t wearing that frankenstein of a creation in public…into the scrap pile for you!

Next, I started on the dress portion. Originally I thought it would make a cute and fun summer dress. Buuut already being frustrated with the refashion I decided making it a flowy tank top would look better!

And here comes more frustration and rage! I shortened it, took it in on each side, nope still to big. So I took it in on the back…nope it turned out just awful! 

Sadly this refashion was just not going my way!

3 attempt is a charm? I hope…

New idea! About the only thing I can salvage from this project was the original neckline piece. So I began removing that from the dress. 

 Picking and picking…

  Progress!

I had to sew the bottom together since the fabric had been folded over to make the neckline. 

 Moving forward…looking good so far!

I wanted to attach this to a solid black t-shirt. To do this I removed the sleeves. 

 Buh-bye!

  Sewing the sleeve holes. Of course the fabric stretched while doing this so I had to go back and dart them so they weren’t gaping arm holes.

  Pinned onto my t-shirt!

  Sewing on some buttons!

Finally this headache of a refashion is done!

  

Happy Refashioning!
