10-Minute Refashion Makeover — from Tube Top Dress to Ruffly Skirt!! {tutorial}

5 Jul
header
It’s Summer and the weather has finally started to warm up in Utah, which I am THRILLED about!

I love Summer and my favorite thing to wear around in the Summertime is comfy cotton skirts and flip flops. I was shopping at Kohl’s a few weeks ago, and I saw some little tube dresses. I wasn’t sure if they were dresses or swimsuit coverups, but I loved the navy and white stripes and RUFFLES of one.

I know I can’t pull off a tube dress, so I wondered if I could turn it into a skirt! 

 And for $8 I thought – why not try!!

too short
I stopped at the fabric store and picked up a $2 roll of elastic, and 10 minutes later – I had a comfy, stylish new summer skirt. 
I am so pleased with it!!
before
Here’s what I did to transform the tube dress into a sassy summer skirt: 

wide elastic
  • I took the elastic and wrapped it around my waist and cut the elastic.
pin it
  • Then I folded the tube part of the dress over on top of itself and sewed it shut at the bottom. I left a 3 inch section open so I could thread the elastic through.
thread the elastic through
  • I threaded the elastic through the open part of the tube and brought both ends together through the 3 inch seam. Then I sewed the two pieces of elastic together with my sewing machine. Then I sewed the seam shut.
after
And that is it!! In 10 minutes you can go from a short, revealing tube dress to a more covered up skirt. And I really think the skirt is cuter and easier to wear while chasing kids around for the summer.

Guest Post — make a Nautical, Anthro-inspired Necklace!! {tutorial}

 Hi, I’m Nina from Momma
Go Round
, and I’m SO excited to be here today with Jen!
 

Momma Go Round



Since day one of my blogging adventure I’ve looked up to Jen, so it’s a real
honor to be on TT&J!

Momma Go Round is
all about the miracles, milestones, and meltdowns of
motherhood.
I love to figure out my style in my series Real
Momma, Real Style
, share crazy tales of life with a 2 year old, my
weight loss journey, recipes, things I love, and of course crafts!
Today I would like to share with you my latest Anthropologie
knock off inspired necklace!
Pleated Bead Necklace

Fabric – Large Round Beads – Scissors – Thread – Needle

Cut a strip down the length of your fabric that is twice as
wide as your beads. My beads were about 1/2 inch in diameter, so I cut
my strip 1 inch thick.
Iron your strip in
half.

Leaving a few
inches at the end, fold strip into two pleats and stitch through.
(My fabric was 42 inches, so I needed
to leave a tail to attach another strip to tie off the necklace. If
you are lucky enough to have a fabric from a longer bolt, you may want
to leave more of a tail for tie off)

Feed bead onto needle and stitch through.
Add two more
pleats to the other end of the bead and stitch through. Then stitch
back through both sets of pleats and the bead.
Continue until you have desired number of beads. If you got
lucky and have long enough fabric, you could stop here by simply tying
off the ends. I was not so fortunate, so I had to add some
on.
I simply knotted on additional strips of fabric to the tails
of the beaded strip.
I LOVE my new Anthro necklace without the Anthro price tag!
Perfect for dressing up a “getting stuff done today” outfit
🙂
Thank you so much
for having me today Jen!

Spring Sweater Refashion 2011 {1}

1 Mar


Last Thursday I went on Studio 5 and shared a bunch of sweater refashions. 
Now, let me preface this by saying that I have only been sewing for about a year. 
So these are really easy, straight-stitch kind of projects!!
The first one I’d like to share is also one my favorites {I have 11 to share}. 
This is a kind of coral v-neck sweater with a blue and white nautical mix.  
I love this color combination for Spring!!


I started with a plain sweater, a scarf and an old coral/orange t-shirt.

  •  I laid the scarf on top of the sweater and draped it from one shoulder down to the opposite side of the waist. And then I made ruffles down the length and pinned those in place. 
  • After they were all pinned, I sewed three straight lines with my sewing machine down the scarf, attaching it to the sweater. You can sew more lines down the scarf if you like a less poufy type of garment.
  • Then I took an old t-shirt that’s too small for me and is about the same color as the sweater and cut about 20 four-inch circles out of the material. 
 
  • I then made a very fluffy flower. I used my Big Shot machine to cut the circles, but you could also hand sew them. I sewed it all together and attached it at the bottom with a piece of felt. Then I sewed the flower onto the top of the scarf. 
 
Very easy refashion!! Total time — 30 minutes – 1 hour.
Total cost — $12 for the sweater {I already had the scarf and the old t-shirt}
Sorry my pictures are a little blurry. I was going to take some new ones but have been sick..

I wore the sweater out the other day and had tons of people ask me if it was from Anthropologie – {giggle}!!!

Here’s a clip from the show if you want to see it 🙂

If you
notice the interfacings are an inch smaller in width & height, this is done
to reduce the bulk in seams while sewing.
Let’s
start
————————————————————————————————
Applying fusible interfacing
1.
Press the interfacings to the wrong sides of the exterior, lining, flap & the
pocket cut pieces .Skip this step for exterior if it is leather, faux leather,
thick burlap or vinyl. Make sure to keep the interfacings in the centre so that
½” is peeking out from all four sides (fig 1).
 

Please note -The flap
interfacing is the same size as the flap. Use a medium heat steam setting on
your iron. Start in the center of your fabric, and set the iron down on the
fabric, not moving it around much toward the outer edges. Now you have 1
exterior, 1 lining, 2 pocket panels, and 1 flap circle ready to sew.
Start
in the center of your fabric, and press (set the iron down on the fabric, not
moving it around much) toward the outer edges. Now you have 1 exterior, 1 lining,
2 pocket panels, and 1 flap circle ready to sew
————————————————————————————————
Adding the pockets
2. Fold the ½ “peeking out on the long
edge
of the pocket panel towards the interfaced side & iron
it .Fold the panel into half with the interfaced sides together, matching the
5” edge & iron it(fig 2). Repeat this with the other pocket panel & top
stitch the folded edge.
 
 

 3. Take one
pocket panel & pin it ½” above the bottom edge of the lining panel. Pin the
other pocket panel 4” above the bottom edge of the lining panel. (Fig 3). Sew
the pockets on three sides with ½” seam allowance.
————————————————————————————————
Making the flap
4.Take the  circle flap & fold
it into 2 & cut it into 2 semi circles.If it has a pattern,see the
directionality while deciding the line on which to cut!
5.If you intend to add a button /rosette/flower,sew it 1.25” above the
curve on the front side of the flap.If you want to add a trim, add it while the
final top sewing, do not sew it at this stage.

6.On
the lining side of the flap measure & mark the centre of the flap .Then
mark a point at 1” from the curve along this centre .
 

 

————————————————————————————————
Attaching the flap
7. Place the
top edge of the lining panel & lining flap right
sides together & pin. Stitch them together with a 1/2” seam
allowance (fig 5). Fold the seam allowance towards the lining panel & top
stitch, & don’t forget to back stitch at each end!

 

8.
Place the
top edge of the main panel & main flap right sides together &
pin. Stitch them together with a 1/2” seam allowance
. Fold the seam allowance towards the main panel & top stitch same as the lining
panel.
9.
Measure & mark the centre of the exterior panel by joining the long edges
together & mark a point 1.5” from the bottom edge along this centre. Attach
the female part of the magnetic snap on this point.
10.
Now you have 1 exterior & 1 lining panels attached to the flaps & ready
to assemble. (Fig 6)
————————————————————————————————
Final Assembly
11. Take the
webbing/macramé/strap & put the trigger clip through it, fold it in half
& place 1 cm below the top edge of the top pocket facing inside. Sew it
with a few stitches firmly. (Fig 7)
 
 

12. Place the lining
& the exterior panel’s
right sides together
matching the sides & the curves of the two flaps. Pin all the outside
edges. (Fig 8)
 13. Stitch all around the sides & the flap with a ½” seam allowance.
For the bottom edge sew 0.5” from both the bottom corners & leave 4” gap in
the bottom edge to turn the right side out. Remember to back stitch the 0.5”
sewing in the bottom edge else the sewing unravels while turning the right side
out!
 

 14.
Clip the corners in the seam allowance as well around the flap curves.Turn the
case right side out through the gap in the bottom edge. Push out all the
corners & the flap with your fingers or a turning tool gently.Fold the 4”
opening ½” inside on both sides & pin (fig 9).Sew it shut .
Top stitch the entire wallet with a ¼” seam allowance & the mini lauren is ready to paint
the town red with you!

Guest Project — Turn an old pair of pants into a Sleek, Stylish, Comfortable Skirt! {Clothing Refashion}

7 Jan
 Hi – I’m Lisa from This Mabey Heaven! 
I love trying new things and writing about my crafting and mothering experiences. 
I’d love to share an easy clothing refashion with you today.
Take an old pair of pants and turn it into a sleek, stylish, comfortable skirt!!
 
The Panelist Skirt has the sleek look of a tailored skirt, but is extra comfy because of the inside panel. When you’re standing still, it looks like a slim pencil skirt. But when walking or sitting, you see this is no ordinary skirt. I love the split look when sitting and the fact that it doesn’t crawl up when you sit down like a fitted skirt would. And the panel goes far enough around that you don’t have to worry about being modest–you’re covered even if a small child squirms in your lap.
And then there’s walking or even running (i.e. after small children). Once again, you’re covered and there’s no worries about having to take small steps.
Let’s get started.
I started by ripping out all the inside leg seams and up the front and back seams (just below the zipper in the front and a couple inches from the waistband in the back) from a pair of pants that still fits somewhat. I like my skirts to sit low on my hips, so it’s okay if they’re a size or two bigger than I normally wear.
Next, decide how long you want your skirt and mark it (remember that you’ll need enough length to also create a panel of almost equal length, so keep this in mind). Now cut off both legs to the same length. Set the cut-off legs aside for the moment.
With the skirt turned inside out, pin the back of the skirt how you’d like it to fit, ignoring the curved pieces that would normally go between your legs (this is the trickiest part, I promise). Run a basting stitch along the newly created back, and try it on.
If you have puckers or don’t like it, the basting is easy to take out and try again. (I ended up letting my seam out a little after taking the photo–I didn’t want it to be that clingy.)
If you like the fit, you’re ready to sew the seam, following your basting stitches. Cut off the excess fabric, and zigzag the edges so they don’t fray.
On to the front. I wanted to show off the panel, so I folded back the front inseams about 2-3 inches on both sides starting right below the zipper. I pinned these in place, and cut away the excess fabric. Then iron the sides down 1/4″ and then another 1/4″ so the raw edges aren’t showing, and sew down both sides.
Now for the panel. Take one of your cut-off pant legs, and hem all the way around it. You should be able to use the original hem on the bottom, which is nice. Now all you have to do is create two buttonholes–one on each of the top corners of your panel.
Sew buttons to the inside waistband of your skirt to correspond with the width of your panel.
Hem your skirt, and you’re ready to wear it! You could also create an additional (or reversible) panel to change things up. The panel is completely separate, so there’s really no limit to what you can do!
Thanks Lisa!! 

What a great clothing refashion idea!
