Re-blogging: One student making great strides refashioning and restyling

As I gear up for next years challenge I continue to be inspired by my students who take on various challenges. Last spring Silver Spring Sewing Sisters had a series of refashioning workshops. Students were asked to shop local thrift stores and find an item that was worth spending the time making it into something more beautiful. I’m proud to say several students came away with fabulous creations. One example is below. Enjoy!


A re-blog from May 27, 2011

A couple weeks ago Silver Spring Sewing Sisters had our first in a series of Refashioning & Restyling Classes. As part of that class everyone was asked to bring in an item that could use some reworking. Each one of the students who completes their project will be featured here on my blog. Today, Lily is being featured for refashioning this fabulous little colorful number. Below you will see where we turned the dress inside out and we are attempting to take off about an inch and a half from each side. Not to mention it needs a hem and some darts. With determination and perseverance along with adding her own touch of style Lily has finished a great dress she can add to her wardrobe. And I must add she looks great!! YAY Lily!!! Great Job!!! We are so proud of you. You are now officially the new poster child for Silver Spring Sewing Sisters Refashioning & Restyling
