Refashion Series Ep. 10 The Overall Dress

Picked up this overall dress at Savers.  I think it was $10 or $12, but it was half off.  I was really excited about its potential!I loved the olive green color because it works beautifully as a neutral.  It just needed a little updating to make it perfect. Alterations: took […]

Refashion Series Ep. 9 The Metta Polka Dot Top to Skirt

This refashion is another one that began when I inherited my grandmother’s clothes after she passed over a year ago.  I loved the print and the soft blue color.  However, I felt it wasn’t something I would really wear, so it made for a perfect refashion.  That, and it was […]

Refashion Series Ep. 5 // The Pom Dress by Kara Metta

Refashion Series Ep. 5 The Metta Hawaiian Dress

Back at it again refashioning on another piece I inherited from my sweet Grandma Metta.  I like to take breaks between refashioning her pieces and thrifted items because it’s so emotional to work with her things.  It’s also a lot more stressful, because making a fatal mistake means one less […]
