Passions

A Marvelous Marble Refashion

By Contributing Writer, Marisa Glied

This is one of those refashions of a refash. This dress was handmade by someone and thrifted by ME!

As you can see, this does nothing for me…

Onto the chopping block! I chopped off the length of the dress to make it a tunic.

I hemmed the bottom of my tunic.

It is hard to see the detail of the dress in the before picture but it had a diagonal flap of fabric across the chest. I used the scrap of fabric from the bottom of the dress to make another flap of fabric across the chest.

Lastly, I made a cut down the middle of the neckline and folded the sides back to create a v-neck. I stitched that down. I also shortened the sleeves to just about the elbow and POOF!

A new tunic!

 

Before & After!

Happy Refashioning!!!

About the author

Marisa Glied

My name is Marisa, phonetically that’s Marie-sa and I am the writer of TheRefashStash. I started TheRefashStash 2 years ago when I seriously got into sewing as a hobby. You could say I have been refashioning before I even knew what refashioning was! I started by paining my own custom t-shirts, taking in clothes and then making my own prom dress! What is refashioning, you may ask? To me refashioning is taking an article of clothing and making it something new! This could be as simple as changing buttons on a shirt or making a suit jacket into a fabulous new purse! Refashioning is all about being creative! TheRefashStash is also a contributor on the community refashion blog: Refashion Co-Op. I have also participated in the friendly online sewing competitions: Refashion Runway Season 3, and came in 3rd place in Refashion Runway Season 4: Allstars.
