Thank you for showing this off! I'm beginning to learn crochet and I want to try this out.

That looks great, the colour blocking is very flattering! (And someone who knows the 'right' way to spell colour - you can take the girl out of Canada, but you can't take Canada out of the girl!) I must give this a try. Hitting this Rocks!

I make sure my computer and phone don't auto correct my Canadian spelling when I type e-mails and text messages as well.  Grin

what a great transformation of stash fabric! i really like that swath of green amidts the black/white/gray and the back opening of your stars shirt.
It's great for stash busting! I always buy the remnants at Joann's but it's never enough for a whole shirt.

The stars shirt is amazing.  I wouldn't have the confidence to attempt that lovely back opening.

Confidence as in sewing it or to wear it? It took a few sewing attempts to get the back right, as for wearing it I made a similar shirt with a smaller opening that shows less back.

Another colour block shirt and a Star shirt.

The colour block shirt was inspired by a tank top I saw at Rickis, I knew Immediately that I could make it so I traced a tank top pattern that I had, cut it into several pieces (after labelling them) and sewed it up.  All of the fabric was kicking around in my stash was really simple to make!

The second top was based on a shirt that I own that no longer fits (it's too short, and too tight), I traced it and found some fabric in my stash that I wanted to use.  I didn't have enough to make sleeves/add length so I used black material for the sleeves/bottom band, and white fabric to use for the neckbands/sleeve bands.

*also, as a side note, I apologize for not 'dolling myself up' for the photos, I'm a naptime crafter who is in serious need of a haircut!*

I really like this, you did a great job  Smiley I think the same style would look really nice as a dress!

If you make a dress I would love to see it!

The technique of the ruched panel is really clever. It could probably work in a lot of things. I think you've inspired me to clean out my t-shirt pile.

It's a great recon for old t-shirts and/or scrap fabric if you have enough.  Plus because colour blocking if such a trend right now you can kill 2 birds with one stone.

It's never awful to alter some vintage if you are making it wearable!  I can only imagine what our children and grandchildren will do to the clothes from the 80s when they go vintage shopping.....
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / refashion of a refashion on: July 20, 2012 08:52:43 PM
I refashioned this top in the winter months from 2 t-shirts and a tank top into a cowl neck shirt.  Since it is now summer in Texas, and I wasn't that fond of the finished top I decided to refashion it again.

The beginning:

The middle:

The End:

While I do realize that the greys are 2 different shades, I sort of like it that way, gives it an interesting look.

Thanks for looking!
