My Top became a Skirt!

It's better to make something out of garments that you don't wearing anymore 💕

I needed to refresh the grey wool jacket,  so I have used the blue sleeves from the other jacket
and waistband is turned back-forward. It has a little belt buckle and it's nice so I like to keep it.

The armholes were perfect to make pockets, so I have used a bit of grey jersey at the back
and sewn a pocket line at the top of the skirt.

The belt from the top is just for decoration 🌸

Top with Tie back

This is a great pattern that I had to make💙 I have used sport stretch jersey which are a bit shiny,  but it's not wrinkling when travelling!
As you can see, this part is sewn together with the back-part and the tie is loose. I hand stitched the tie together so it won't move when I'm wearing it 😊

Refashion - Blue Butterflies

This jacket is from my mother💕 and I found the sweater in my husbands wardrobe... It was a perfect match with the blue butterflies on the jacket! The sweater is checkered at the front so I have turned it back-forward, and used the ribbon at the waist. Then it became an A-line skirt. The sleeves is turned inside-out because of bumps :)  The wool dress is lovely to wear at the office in cooler days ⛄

Pleated Top!

If you like pleated garment, this is IT! 😆 The top is made of jersey, but of course the pleats would be more visible  if I had used a plain color fabric, but I like this abstract print fabric. I have made a Pleated Jersey Dress earlier, and it's a great pattern!

Refashion - Socks became Cuffs :)

This is one of my husbands old sweater.. I think it was a perfect match together with the powerful cerise sweater 💟
I added a bit yellow from a "refashion" jacket and the upper part  of my wool socks as cuffs as a finish for the sleeves.  It's delicious to wear when it's freezing outside! 😉
Since the backside of the sweater is cerise  I had enough to use as a finish for the skirt of the dress. The black waistband is a part from a bolero from an Earlier Project As you can see I have turned the sweater back-forward  so the zipper is at the back.

Wool Jacket

Merino wool is delicious this time of year! I love long jackets and it's great to wear over a dress, skirt and trousers. I have combined two fabric which I bought at It's an easy pattern with pockets and a belt at the waist.

I have combined the fabrics on the pockets as well since I didn't have enough fabric 😉

I have only used one cover button with a push button underneath.

I'm wearing my Wool Dress with Leaves underneath.
