Utilising every single part of the original item is not as easy as it sounds when it comes to refashioning women's clothes. I find there are usually bits and pieces left over. Today's showcased project shows how it's possible to have zero waste in a refashion.
Susan, from Second Chances by Susan, shows how to refashion a rather large dress into two garments - a skirt and a tunic - with nothing left over! With clever use of sleeves and ties, Susan has created a belted accent, resulting in an eye catching garment.
Susan is second to none when it comes to refashioning garments into women's clothing. I have long admired her tunics - very much my style paired with skinny jeans. Sadly, I have yet to make one for myself, as I haven't found the right garment to begin with when Op Shopping. Perhaps the garments have been hanging there staring me in the face, but I haven't had the imagination to see the potential.
How successful are you at finding garments in Op Shops (Thrift Stores)?
