more recycled fashion

July 1, 2008 |  Category:   craft


I finally got around to making M a shirt today from an old Diesel top that doesn’t fit me anymore. The stripes and the coloring are pretty great so I’m happy to be able to repurpose it into a little shirt for her, like this dress, particularly because I’m not buying new clothes for the kids this summer. I have to say, even though I’m just a few pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight, I have no idea how I ever fit into these tiny tiny clothes. What the hell happened?

    Hi Linda, I just shrunk the proportion down, and reconstructed the top completely, based loosely on the original shirt.
