Refashion Coolness

Howdy folks!..The sun is happily shining this afternoon and I am here of course sewing and taking care of home…Y’all remember the simple sheath dress I drafted up from another ready-to-wear one I bought before I started sewing?…well, I decided that I wouldn’t be wearing it as a dress anymore; I washed it and it shrunk or I gained weight one…but that was a new garment; only worn once when it was a dress….I shortened the length a little more and added a super cute split in the back for extra snazziness…it came out nice and the garment as a shirt I know will get much more wear….Im just not that into short skirts or shorts anymore…Is it the age thing?…maybe, maybe not….
Refashion central!….Okay, photos now!

Me, very happy in my self-drafted sheath dress and DIY obi-style belt…I really loved the look but I didn’t want to wear this ensemble or any other with this dress….(shrugs shoulders)

Front side of my new shirt…

A shot of the back…See the split?! 🙂

Neckline shot…Cool fabric if I do say so myself…

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
