Refashion Project

  1. PicMonkey CollageDyed this lace tunic. It was originally kind of a skin tone shade of pink, but now it is royal blue (see top left photo).
  2. Then, I decided to use some of the material from the bottom of the tunic to add sleeves and raise the neckline, thus shortening it into a blouse length. It was quite a tricky task, especially the neckline (I was originally more nervous about the sleeves, but they turned out better than I had hoped). But, considering I’d never really sewn lace material, I was rather pleased with the results. 🙂
  3. I also made the skirt from a dress (several years ago).

Dress Re-fashion

As you can tell, I shortened the sleeves, but I also made the skirt of it to tea-length (before, it was almost ankle length). So now I can wear this in not-so-cold weather *and* cold weather (I can layer it with a cardigan or jacket).

IMG_09312 IMG_09542 IMG_09572Also, I recently tried the “cat eye” type look in my eye make-up. I rarely use make-up, so this was a challenge. I also did light tan eye shadow instead of golden, which (I thought) made my eyes look brighter. I may do it again sometime… 🙂 This is what I looked like: IMG_1030 IMG_1032 IMG_1053
