Hello my friends, it’s been some time! We’re back from our long trip to the UK. Lots of fun was had, I even got to meet a handful of amazing blogger friends, and pictures of our trip will happen soon once we’ve settled back in (and taken care of a few remaining bathroom remodel-related things). But most importantly today, pushing through the jet lag, I have something fun to share!
Remember how I told you I was selected by the lovely and talented refashioner Portia to participate in her 2013 Refashioners project? Well she kicked off two weeks of guest post refashions yesterday. If you haven’t seen yesterday’s post showing what Karen from Did You Make That? refashioned, you had better go take a look, it’s pretty amazing (oh and she was one of the wonderful people I got to meet on my vacation!).
Today, my refashion is up on Portia’s blog! Just what did I do? I took a huge men’s flannel button-down, long-sleeved, collared shirt and turned it into a vintage-inspired skirt! (All in the midst of the bathroom remodel, which I can’t even believe on hindsight!)
I haven’t done a lot of refashioning in my time, so this project really was a challenge. But I’m pleased as punch with the results and seriously want to start scouring thrift stores for similar shirts because I love this skirt. If you haven’t dabbled in refashioning yet, I hope this makes you give it another look. It sure made me!
Want to learn more? Pop on over to Portia’s blog and read all about my refashioned skirt today. And be sure to follow her blog to see all the other refashions coming up over the next two weeks!
