Keep it moving – Refashioning follow up

When it comes to refashioning and restyling oftentimes its difficult to maintain the momentum. After you have dismantled a garment you might begin to think to yourself “why did I remove that, now what?”. To assist the class participants with this somewhat daunting task we are meeting once during the week to keep everyone motivated. We call this meetup “Keep it Moving”.  Some students are eager and ready to get started and others are struggling a little and somewhat reluctant to take the next step.

For this weeks class we met after work at a restaurant and much to our good fortune we were able to use the large event room free of charge.  The class was able to spread out and work on their refashioning projects with plenty of space.

Kanisa's dress previously had big puffy sleeves and a belt. She removed both and will be adding the finishing touches next week.

Kanisa found this muumuu at a swap a couple months ago. She is planning to make a skirt from it.
