How to sew high waist shorts 💡


Summer unfortunately is behind us ðŸ‘£, but  we can still count on quite a few warm ☀ days, 
although not so warm to jump into shorts without tights and full boots but
who said that shorts look bad in combination with boots ðŸ‘¢ and long sweater👚.

Dress Before :
Beautiful color, patterns and quite big piece of fabric after my first refashion 

  during work ðŸ‘Š

Ready shorts on me
I love those shorts , they are extremely comfortable and, you must admit, they look super nice ðŸ‘¯


Love ,

No Sew

I have this tank top that I wanted to wear before the summer weather flies away from me

I cut the straps in the back and used them to tie it up as a halter top.

Come check it out on my blog!

The Army Vest

Hello Refashion Co-op. I made this sleeveles jacket/vest recently. I have been wanting one for a while but never found one that fit well. My daughter put these army green cargo pants in the give away pile and I thought the color was perfect. Could I make what I wanted from these pants? I could try! I found this inspiration on Pinterest
(Authors Note; I put in a new link.)

I cut the legs off and then cut the side seams open. 

I stitched the legs together and had one large piece of fabric. This is the beginning of my vest. The drawstring will make the neckline and collar.

I opened the seams on the sides to make armholes. This was easy and worked well.

I used the back pockets to decorate the front of the vest and used a hidden drawstring from the inside waistband as a belt. It turned into a nice layering piece for cool weather.

Thanks for reading, for more details and pictures go to I Can Work With That.

Oval tablecloth

Hi all! I dont have before pictures but please imagine a white tablecloth with an oval shape and trimmed around with lace. I dyed it blue and cut a hole in it and threw on a belt and now it is a full hi lo skirt. When i get a second I will finish the edge and add elastic so that it could be worn sans belt and so that it will not fray. But this type of refashion is sew simple and looks sew cute when it is done.
Front view, side view, and lace detail. Sorry for headless pics! Halloween coming up so please imagine I just dont have one.... muahaha!(evil headless laughter)

Cold Shoulder Refashion Hack for Sleeveless Dresses and Tops

Since the cold shoulder trend is trending everywhere this season, I decided to make my own cold shoulder refashion. This is a very easy technique that can be used to update any sleeveless dress or top you may have in your closet. 

To make my cold shoulder "sleeve," I used a lace that was similar to this dress that I started with. 
First I sewed along the pink dots, attaching the new "sleeve" to the dress. Afterwards, I closed off the new "sleeve" along the green dots.

See? Simple and easy, right? Now go on and make your own beautiful cold shouldered designs. :)

P.S. Since I had some extra lace, I added some to the bottom of the dress to tie it all together.
