    ajtak7171 added the project T-Shirt Recycling Part 1!
    Stripe_shirt_refashion_04_listing

    This dress is made out of three t-shirts that I sorted out from my closet. For some reason, I just don’t really wear regular t-shirts at all. But I have been wanting to make some jersey dresses for…

    Vintage_re-fashion_11_listing

    This is a blouse I made out of two old blouses which were torn (the white one) and didn’t fit me (the dark one), yet were made out of good quality fabric (100% silk!) that I wanted to save. It was …

    Ralf, thank you so much! I can never tell if it is only my own enthusiasm because I actually made them, so comments like yours really make me happy :-)

    Uhm, yes, after making leather gloves, I needed to make shoes… Actually, this had been pre-occupying my mind a lot, and finally I’ve made my first pair of street-shoes. I made the pattern myself,…

    My name is Katja and I am a re-fashionista :-)
    I cleaned out my closet, and so did my husband, and I made a maxi-dress for zero money using nine old shirts…
    I kept as many original details as p…

    Thank you! Not so difficult at all, or my first pair wouldn’t be causing such great reactions… :-)

    ajtak7171 commented on the project 1950's Leather Gloves, hand-sewn

    Well, since everything is hand-sewn, it’s very simple. I actually used different techniques on each glove and can’t tell what’s better. On the first, I folded the bias over the edge and took a catc…

    Thank you so much Ralf! I’m pleased with them for my first try, but there is room for improvement… :-)

    Thank you so much! I have several glove-patterns in my old magazines, but so far none for men. If I find one, I’ll let you know!

    Gloves_10_listing

    This isn’t a typical BurdaStyle project, as it was all hand sewn. I found the pattern in one of my 1950’s magazines and used some leather I had in my stack. What a fun project! And I’m in ample tim…

    Oooh thank you!! Yes, the coat is also made by me and even was originally meant as a combo. However, the way I sewed it up (fabric choices) I really think I’ll be wearing them separately.

    Another vintage pattern all sewn up! I stayed pretty close to the original and used a vintage sewing book to get the techniques right. I have posted several details about it on my blog. Also, I am …
