Refashion - Blue Butterflies

This jacket is from my mother๐Ÿ’• 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! ๐Ÿ˜† 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 ๐Ÿ’Ÿ
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! ๐Ÿ˜‰
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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

I'm wearing my Wool Dress with Leaves underneath.
The pattern is from BurdaStyle 01/2012

Chiffon Blouse

Chiffon can be difficult to work with, but it's worth the effort! I have combinde plain black together with this lovely chiffon with flowers ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ    Since I didn't have the fabric that I needed,  I bought a dress in a shop which was perfect together with the black chiffon :) The buttons looks like "diamonds" and are a nice detail.  The pattern is from BurdaStyle issue 10/2019. Since the blouse is transparent I'm wearing a black top underneath.

Refashion with Wool & Scarf

It's getting cooler during these days, and it's great to wear  a warm dress ๐Ÿ’œ
When you have a dress which you are not happy with since it's a bit short, then it's easy to cut it apart..
The blue jacket was a bit short too, so I have cut of the waistband and used it as a top.
I have used the Lilac Sweater for an earlier refashion dress, but the sleeves were available! I have turned them inside out because of bumps from earlier use..   I also had a bit left for the belt at the waist.
The scarf is a great decoration for the dress and I fell in love with this when I was in Copenhagen a while ago :)
I have also made another refashion Dress with Scarf earlier.
