Sometimes you may find or have an almost-perfect garment, but there’s something about the fit or style that’s not quite right. Here are five Craftster members that changed what they had on hand into something that they really wanted. You’ll be amazed at these tranformations! 

smarmyclothes took several thrift store sweaters, cut them apart, and sewed them back together to create this gorgeous one of a kind sweater coat.

craftylittlemonkey took one of her unworn t-shirts and made it into this adorable spring dress for her daughter.
TeenageRebelOfTheWeek changed a large men’s pullover sweater into this lovely form-fitting women’s cardigan.
MissJessica pulled off this t-shirt to skirt transformation in only an hour! And look: pockets!
Last but not least, smashu made some cool summer blouses using thrifted men’s dress shirts.



Make something new out of something old! Craftster is full of ideas for reconstructing not only clothing, but various other items as well. You’ll find hundreds of ideas in the Craftster tag cloud under “reconstructed” or “recon”.
