Cardi to Dress Refashion, Spring Collection 2012…


So this one isn’t exactly reinventing the wheel. In fact, I didn’t even bother to do a tutorial for it. Why? Because it was a simple re-sizing job, and who hasn’t seen that in blogland a zillion times already.

I basically found this brand new men’s cardi on sale for only $5, and turned it into this…


I didn’t have to alter the hemlines or the neckline. Simply brought in the shoulders and sleeves, as well as added some belt loops and added a sash. Voila, instant dress!


Chloe likes it, I like it…and it took me under an hour to make. Yahoo!  



Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing!
