Refashion Series Ep. 7 The Convertible Bow Top

I wore this dress at Snap conference last year for the ’80s prom party.  I had actually forgotten to bring the dress I wanted to wear, so I ran to Deseret Industries and bought this dress between sessions.  I knew I’d never wear it again, so it made sense to […]

Refashion Series Episode 6 // The Pom Dress

I’ve had this dress in my refashion stash for so long, I can’t even remember where I got it. It was either a local thrift store or a swap meet. I do remember being excited about it’s potential. The fabric is a lovely neutral that can beautifully pair with a […]

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 […]

DIY Embellished Jean Vest

I recently came across this jean jacket at Deseret Industries.  I thought it looked super cute…until I tried it on.  The sleeves, you guys, the sleeves.  They looked 100% outrageous on me because they puffed up too high on the shoulders.  While I think princess sleeves can look beautiful on […]

Refashion Series Episode 4: The Metta Trench

I am so excited to finally share the refashion of my grandmother’s trench coat. Some of you may remember that I inherited my grandma Metta’s clothes when she passed away last year. I already refashioned one of her dresses and one of her sweaters. This coat is extra special to […]

This sweater is another fun piece I inherited from my grandmother.  I immediately fell in love with the print and the soft velvety texture of the fabric.  Using one of my own baseball tees, I created a pattern that allowed me to transform this sweater into a trendy new baseball […]

Refashion Series: Ep.1 “The Metta Dress”

When my grandmother passed recently, I learned that they were going to send all of her clothes to the DI.  I immediately asked if I could go through them first and I’m so glad I did!  There were many pieces that were already wearable, some of the others were perfect […]

Silk Dress Refashion

I picked this dress up from a church swap meet.  I love to refashion items I get for free because if I mess it up, there’s really no financial loss.  This was my first time working with silk, so I was a little nervous, but you have to take some risks if […]

She added 5 inches of length to this dress and lined the top. It looks gorgeous! I love finding clever ways to make things modest without looking tacky.

Making Modest: Adding Length to a Dress

When I saw this dress on the Modcloth website, I instantly fell in love.  I knew it would be a little short, and that the top was sheer, but I also knew that I would find a way to make it meet my needs.  I was a little surprised at […]
