The Refashioners 2016 – Your Makes – Vol II

Welcome to Vol II of your makes. And maaaan! They just keep coming! So SO good. As a reminder (or a kick up the backside if you prefer it that way) there are 10 days left until the deadline! (30th September. Midnight. BST/UK) So if you want to enter to be in with a chance of winning that amazing prize, then get moving! I’d also like to clarify that not appearing in one of these round ups does NOT mean your entry is out of the running. It simply means that I couldn’t use your images for reasons of size/resolution/quality etc. So make sure there are plenty of large size images knocking around for me to use. Either on one of the sharing groups (detailed below) or on your blog. Because I want to share as many as possible on here!

So…what’s been coming in? Wellllll…….The Refashioners 2016 - Your Makes - Vol 2

Big love for this fab sweatshirt from Selmin of Tweed & Greet. The subtle little sashiko detail is so perfect!

Although I don’t wear dresses, I could be tempted by this. Right up my style strata!  If I wore dresses then this dress by Stitch Remedy would be in my wardrobe for sure. Love it.

What a difference some dye makes!  Looks like 2 completely different jackets right. Also intrigued by the back yoke of Linda’s jacket. Are those the original crotch curves I wonder??

Proving that denim isn’t all blue is this awesome floral bomber from Trish.

Great waistcoat from Debra. The pocket details and original patches of wear/pocket shadows really caught my eye on this one.
