About Me

My photo
I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

Refashion trend or addiction???

Have you found MadebyLex ??? This is the very neatest blog if you love clothes!! Lex is a very talented seamstress who sews and has her own clothes line! Lex also has refashioning tutorials online for people like me who like to pretend they sew, (well at least pretend they know how!)

Above is a picture of the tank top I made, trying my very best to follow Lex's instructions -any lack of perfection is so on me, because her pictures and directions are so wonderful!!! Well this is my attempt to refashion a tank top that I bought on clearance for $1.50!!! I used two knit tops that my youngest had out grown a pink, and a grey shirt to cut strips out of it. I then sewed the strips together and ruffled them. (I sewed a bias seam down the middle then pulled the bottom thread to gather or ruffle the fabric) once I had the fabric ruffled, I arranged it the way I wanted it to look on the tank top, and sewed them on. I love that the fabric of the ruffles are unfinished. I love the frayed look!!!

I have to admit this may be an addiction it was so much fun to make something so cute for $1.50!!!!! I may have to hunt through my closet to see what else I can refashion! If you are looking for inspiration head over to her blog!!
