i was Invited to assist a canadian TV Show as spectator, come up w this Chemise- Refashion, so easy that i couldnt lose the opportunity !!i did try to take loots of pics, to be a little more descriptive, since english isn’t my first language, some times got lazy for the writing part!! so i thought pics will be better even if I’m sure i miss some steps.
for this Project i remove the neck, “bags”, cuffs, use a chemise that you like the fitting for template, using fabric markers, sew w straight stick, ones you like the fitting, work on te recovering of the old neck, and adding the strips on the "front sides " i leave the cuffs at the end, i run out the fabric, and didnt really got more since was just for the cuffs, at the same time i still want them to have the new look, so i come up w the idea of just add a narrow stripe the fabric, at the end i reassembly the whole thing using the original stich holes for the new stitch !!
Old Chemise, piece of Poping or Contrasting fabric 18″×21″ At least, no sewing tape or fabric glue.
4 weekly drawings, including a Grand Prize valued at more than $4,000!
