From 17 to 30 September, Boomie organised a 14-Day-Refashion-Challenge. (You can read more about it here, unfortunately in Dutch.. >> http://boomieboomie.blogspot.be/search/label/recykleren) I decided to join in so here are my clothing projects Smiley

Before: an old blue dress I found in the thriftshop for a mere , and a white lace top that didn't fit me anymore.


After: a refashioned dress I can easily wear (at least in summer)


What did I do? I shortened the blue dress, and joined the top and bottom of the dress with some elastic. Done!


Another dress I had lying around, but it didn't have any straps so I was too scared to wear it  Tongue I also had some lace leftover.


After: a dress with straps! And yes, I do know it's pretty short, but I like it that way  Wink




Let me know what you think!

Very nice.  I like the first one very much. The white top goes well with the blue skirt and makes a prettier dress.

They're both so pretty! I noticed the second one doesn't cover your bra straps so well. If that bothers you, this  is what I've been doing to all my dresses lately: http://offbeatmama.com/2011/08/how-to-fix-slipping-bra-strap. I usually just sew the snaps in directly and use doubled thread instead of the ribbon.
