- Dyed this lace tunic. It was originally kind of a skin tone shade of pink, but now it is royal blue (see top left photo).
- 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. 🙂
- I also made the skirt from a dress (several years ago).
…That dark blue could look great with pink? Certainly not this gal right here! X) But, it happens that I’m wrong every once and a while. 😉 And this was one of those times.
A friend recently gave some clothing to my sisters and me, and this top that I’m wearing in the outfit (the blue top, not the pink one under it) was one that she gave us. Anyway, it had a bunch of big, frilly flowers on it– I didn’t much care for them *on* the top (I’ll definitely use them in a craft project though), so I took those off, and there was this cute “rope” design under them. I left that on one side and took it off the other side. It was a quick, easy, and fun refashion project. I love this top now! 😀
