Strapless Cocktail Dress to Tulle Skirt Refashion

I am the biggest girly girl and I absolutely adore tulle skirts. My closet is full of them! I really loved the bottom of this strapless cocktail dress, so naturally it was going to become a skirt. This was actually so easy and I love my new tulle skirt!

Since this dress originally did not have a zipper and was stretchy, I did not put a zipper in my new skirt. Instead, I used the waistband from the Sweetheart Dress circle skirt hack from Patterns for Pirates. And since I am still currently obsessed with velvet, I used crushed velvet in mushroom, from Mily Mae Fabrics.


Refashioned Combat Boots Using Floral Embroidered Patches

This was the first time that I refashioned shoes! I would usually steer clear of shoes, because I felt refashioning them was too difficult. I can wrestle with multiple layers of tulle and slippery chiffon, but I was intimidated by shoes, hehe. I got these pink combat boots a couple of years ago, and while I still love them, I felt they needed a little revamp. 

Lately, I've really been loving the embroidered floral trend. I bought these patches back in December and used them to make this refashioned top. I had originally bought the patches to refashion these boots, but like I mentioned before, I was still intimidated by the thought of refashioning shoes. 


Ruffle Shoulder Sweater Refashion // How to Sew Shoulder Ruffles

I'm a huge fan of ruffles. They're just so feminine and they can instantly change up the style of any garment. This ruffle shoulder sweater started off as a grey sweater with a weird fit in the sleeve area. The shoulder area got overstretched somehow and the sleeves fit at a weird length between 3/4 sleeve and long sleeve.

I had some leftover grey sweater knit from when I made my Fall 2017 Capsule Collection, and I thought it was the perfect match for this refashion.

This tutorial can be used to add ruffles to any top, sweater, even dress you may have in your closet. 
The possibilities are endless! You don't even have to change the sleeves like I did in this refashion. I only did that because the sleeves didn't fit me.
