Stash busting Mad Men Inspired Sew weekly Challenge & Refashion.

"Follow the yellow brick road"E. Y. Harburg

Yellow Jumper: Wallis (Bought 2007) & Grey Jumper: Gap (Brought 2006). Both were kept on my recycling radar to become something else.

This week challenge was to repurpose something from our homes. As I used all my spare pillowcases (Pillowcase skirt / Pillowcase dresses) already and I didn’t have any other fabric lying around to re use so I digged into my recycling bag.

Inspiration for the styling was MAD MAN sexy Christina

The Result:

Lots of Love,
Dont miss {Giveaway}

  9. Pattern Review has a contest going right now for refashioned items - but Tuesday is the last day, so you would need to enter it NOW! It looks to me like your jumper would qualify.

    I've entered contests there before - it's just a couple steps more than writing up a normal review - I think you should do it!

  10. GREAT refashion! Im in the contest too - but I think you are going to win : )
