The “Thing” Update

So I totally changed my mind about what I was doing with the crazy dress and here’s what I finally decided. Quite a few people suggested that I pick different patterns from Burdastyle and in the end I picked one form there site. The Theresa dress which had never really caught my attention but I think in the end it will be a really great shape.

I had to forgo the ruffle detail simply because there not enough fabric. In fact I barely had enough as it was.

Heres what I have so far. I just need to finish the neckband and finish the zipper and we’ll be all done.

Hopefully I can finish this up tomorrow! yay.

Who else saw all those new Burda pattern available?? There a bit pricey, but theres some really cute ones!

    Love it! I am very impressed that you could take such a monstrosity :-) and turn it into something so stylish…. but I’ve been impressed with all your refashions, so I am not surprised at all! You inspire me to want to try my hand at restyling thrift-store finds again.

    Cute!! The band around the neck is my favourite part, the structure contrasts nicely with the bold and crazy print. Can’t wait to see the finished dress!

  6. Gosh you are good. Can you write about how you got into sewing? =) I’d love to hear your story. Who taught you?

    Great transformation!!!! I can not wait to see it on you. I am a bit of a plus sized girl but oh I am going to try to refashion a few things for myself this summer. I are an inspiration. :)

    Very nice and yes I love most of the new burda patterns. I really want to make the new boatneck jacket.

    I know that jacket is to die for!

  10. Anne says:

    It’s FABULOUS!!! You have such a keen eye for spotting the potential in a garment – you would never look at this and guess about its former self!

  11. Ooh beautiful! Looks much better than it did before :) I love looking at all the patterns on burdastyle, the free ones are great! I planned on making myself a tweed cape coat, but I’ve had so much uni work I never got round to it and now it’s summer I wont be able to wear it… Maybe I’ll make some summer dresses instead :) x

    This is one of my favorite transformations of yours. I’ve seen other people who buy garments from thrift stores and just nip, tuck, take in the seams, but don’t really take them to the next level. I know they try and have fun going through the process, but they really don’t have your eye for truly creating such a spectacular transformation from such a huge, eyesore of a garment. I look forward to more of your transformations and newly made garments. I, too, buy thriftted garments and love to transform them and make them into something totally different. I don’t like being limited by the original garment, and always get inspired when I see that someone else can create magic through their sewing creativity. Good job!
