re you a fan of recycle? I love recycling and refashioning very much: in fact this Archer shirt is made from my mom’s 80’s dress!

    Recycling fabric and turning it into something cool is much fun, though i haven’t tried refashioning from a garment before. This top is cute! =D

      Thank you, Nadia! I confess I love the challenge of recycling because it’s always a challenge. But it’s so fun! You should try ;)

    I don’t like sewing recycling but I always admire the people who do it and with such a great taste and so neat like you did. Beautiful project.

      Thank you so much, Oksana! I love recycling because it’s always a challenge and it will require additional efforts ;)

    So smart! This looks great on you and the fabric is lovely. 1980 clothes do often have so much extra fabric to them that they are great to give a new life to! That’s so sweet your mom helped you with the unpicking…sometimes my husband unpicks stitches for me (he says it’s relaxing) :) It’s great to have help with sewing, isn’t it?!

      Thank you, ! I don’t like unpicking, for me it’s a little bit stressful… So I can say that we are so lucky to have someone who help us :)
