I have been through my wardrobe looking for inspiration… and instead found items for refashioning.
I found two tops that had seen better days and they didn’t really fit my style anymore…
I really liked the bib on the dark grey knit top. and the soft mixture of aubergine/mushroom coloured merino wool with polyester lace stripes of the first top.
So I cut the first top up the middle and stitched in the bib from the second top. So now it’s more like a frilly indie style vestlet top. It’s very lightweight and unique for summer.
Things I would do differently next time:
- be brave and use the sewing machine instead of hand stitching.
- Play with the hemline and create a different shape.
