This refashion from @miushkamiushka on IG may look simple on the surface  but it actually takes skills and attention to detail to get everything to line up in the way that she has here. That waistband is made from cuffs people! For a self professed beginner, that’s awesome!

I want this lady as a cheerleader for The Refashioners!! If you read Nina’s post about this awesome sleep romper, you’ll see what I mean. This lady has an infectious enthusiasm (and great refashioning skills too!)

Men’s shirts are perfect for upcycling into clothes for the kiddos. And it’s nice to see the boys getting a look in too! This Mulberry Tunic is so gorgeous and man, is that boy gonna break some hearts when he grows up!?

These cutest of cute shorts are made from an upcycled chambray shirt. Simplicity itself but oh so gorgeous and….well…those LEGS!!!!

This make from The Secret Costumier is almost unrecognisable as the shirt it started out as. Love the front bodice shaping on this and the pops of colour chime beautifully with the pale blue don’t you think?

    Hi. Ive just discovered simply sewing mag and was reading the articale on recycling old clothes. Ive turned an old pair of jeans into a handbag and often cur uo dresses because i like the fabric and make them into tops or skirts. Ive also made little girls dresses from mens shirts. Im in australia can i enter this yr or is it only for uk people?
