Refashion Friday: The Refashioners are BACK! Plus Men's Shirt to Maternity Top


A couple of months ago I let you in on the exciting fact that Miss P's 'The Refashioners' challenge was coming back to a computer near you. Well, now the sewing bloggers who she invited to take part have finished their homework and their creations are being put on display to inspire and delight on Miss P's blog all this week and next. There are ten participants in total, with some seasoned refashioners in the mix, and some who are newer to making garments from existing garments, and I'd really recommend you head over to check out their awesome transformations. 


I was one of the lucky bloggers to have been asked by Miss P to participate. My starting point was this nice stripy cotton men's work shirt which I turned into the maternity-friendly smock top you see pictured below. This top style doesn't have to be for maternity, the proportions can be tweaked to make a 'normal' garment just as easily. Head over to today's post on Miss P's blog if you'd like a step-by-step run through of how to create your own version!

That is a beautiful refashion. My favorite part is the bias trim on the sleeves.

I'm doing a bit of altering at the moment so these posts are extremely useful to me. I have got so much to alter it makes me feel guilty buying new fabric but I still do it. This is an idea I had not thought of but will probably use in the future, it is so flattering.
