On set for "It's Sew Easy." I got a crazy response in regard to this refashioned blouse into a bomber jacket. It's exactly how I did the men's shirt upcycle "Button Down to Bomber" tutorial here. Full video is here as well... I actually was going to give this blouse away and before leaving for my "It's Sew Easy TV" taping I whipped it up so I could wear it on set for the episode on "Button Down to Bomber." It fit me perfect so all I had to do was add the rib knit from Organic Cotton Plus and…

I had this striped French top for awhile now and just couldn't seem to get rid of it. I loved the wide stripes, boatneck collar, and 3/4 sleeves. The problem wasn't the overall look but it was too snug to wear comfortable. Instead of getting rid of it I wanted to refashion it into something I could wear. At first I thought a cardigan but I have plenty of those. I eventually came up with this interesting cut out detail on the back using stretchy strips of knit. It added that extra width I…

Before it was a lovely Indian Choli...I didn't take my scissors to it so I can still wear it as a cropped blouse. When thrifting I always look for unique fabrics like this! Up close! Oh…

It's that time of year... I've found the best time to thrift shop is during October in the Halloween section. Most thrift stores save pieces through out the year just for this time. I've found pieces from the 1940's, vintage beaded flapper dresses, 1950's tulle dresses, vintage Chanel, Louis Vuitton...things you dream about for next to nothing. The key is looking for the right things. Skip the trendy, fast fashion brands. They're usually priced bout the same as getting them new and will most…
