So my new project is to upcycle my not-so-old clothes that I have some issues with, such as, not 'muslimah compliance' enough (as JuliZac would say). I have this blouse from French Connection, yup kids size, but comfy and I love it. The downside was that it's a bit too short and nearly gave it away to Vinnies.
I rummaged through my stash of fabrics and could not believe my luck! I have a black and white fabric (bought from Vinnies a loooong time ago) that I have never used before. It matches the blouse perfectly. And after adjusting the shape, I am quite happy with the final product. (Although honestly, it looks a bit like a nursing poncho, haha).
Another blouse is from Elle. Although it was made for teenagers, I felt it was a bit granny looking. This took the longest for a satisfactory transformation:
I have about 2m of that yellow fabric, so in the future, I might have matching pillow case/blanket/curtains, haha!
Now I actually feel like a fashion designer. So if I go to a shop, see a nice dress that wasn't perfect but had potential, I might buy it and asjust it later. Hmm.. Could end up spending more than I should.. And overloading my wardrobe!
