Animal Attraction: Refashioned Top

Hi Everyone!! I hope all is well with you. Today I am coming to you with a refashion that made me love something that I did not initially like. Have you guys ever been given clothing as a gift that was not necessarily ugly, but it was just not your style?

Leopard dress given to me by a friend a few years ago.

The dress in the above photo is very cute, but it is just not my taste. I honestly have not been a fan of animal print until recently, therefore when my friend gave the dress to me, it just hung in my closet, as I did not want to tell her that I did not like it. Well, as I recently looked through my closet for something to wear to dinner with friends, I came upon this dress that I had forgotten about for so long. I tried it on, and was just not comfortable in the dress, so I decided to refashion it into a cute peplum top.

First, I cut the dress into two pieces at about half and inch below the waistline

Next, I cut the skirt portion in two equal halves

I then cut each piece of the skirt at the sides, and stitch them together to make on whole piece.

I then gather the skirt piece to fit the top of the dress.

I attach both pieces back together, and bam!!, you have a new cute peplum top.

Refashioning has made me look at some of the clothing in my closet with fresh eyes. I absolutely love my new top, and plan on wearing it quite a bit. It’s comfortable, cute, and fun to wear. I plan on going through my closet and taking some other stuff and making them new again. If you have some clothing or sentimental items that you are still holding onto, why don’t you look at them with fresh eyes, and see what you can make of them. you may love it even more when you are done.

Thank you guy for taking the time to read my blog, I hope it inspires you to look at your closet differently. Please make sure to subscribe to my blog so that you are always in the know on new posts. Have a wonderful and blessed day.
