Revamped tablecloth to reversible jacket.



This originally was a table cloth that had a wine stain right down the middle.  I loved the detailing so much I created this blouse/jacket that can be worn both ways.  The eyelet and scalloped embellishments are showcased along the edges. No use crying over spilled wine…just make a blouse...

DIY: tshirt sewn raglan sweatshirt

This is a perfect way to transform those too big, unflattering tshirts into a raglan sweatshirt.

We all have those t-shirts, you like the front but can do without the bulk. I came up with this way to transform them into a trendy raglan sweatshirt. Looks great for game day shirts and gives you a little extra warmth for the fall days.

This is also great for kids when winter comes around since they'll probably have outgrown the tshirt once it's warm anyways.

DIY Refashioned Track Pants


This is a great way to transform a pair of sweats that may be a bit short or unflattering into track pants. I personally find this style more flattering with running shoes as well…which I wear a lot. You can also do this with sweatpants your littles have started to out grow. These make for great stylish play pants and they don't get dirty and ripped at the hem.

DIY Zip Skirt


This hand embroidered silk fabric was a thrift find. I initially wanted to make a bag with it, but I couldn't find myself to cut into the fabric. So instead I created this skirt pattern that works perfectly with this standout fabric. The good thing is the edges were already finished and therefore took me about 30 minutes to make. You can make this with any type of fabric and length. Think quilted leathers or tweed fabrics for the winter. Pair with some tights and it's great for the holidays.
