Needed Neutrals

Hello Refashion Co-op. How are you? I love color and design but I needed some simple neutrals in my closet. I liked this poncho sweater but it wasn't very flattering. It also hung down over my hands when I was working and it was annoying to wear in my real life. It is pretty shapeless too.


I did some reshaping with some simple cuts around the buttons. I wanted to leave the arms full and loose. 


I connected the newly cut sides and used a zigzag stitch to control the fraying edges.

A Bag From A Skirt

Hello refashion Co-op. I made a new bag recently. I used a suede skirt as the starting point.


I found this skirt at a clothes swap and loved the colors. It just didn't fit well. I didn't try to take it in or adjust the fit because it would have messed up the design. The squares are laid out evenly and I wouldn't be able to keep it looking nice and even.


Here is the inside view of the stitching that attached the lining to the suede outer layer. The lining of the skirt makes a nice lining for the interior of the bag.


You can't see the new stitching from the outside. The hem of the skirt makes a nice top edge of my new bag.


This is my finished bag from the outside and the inside.
