More pattern tetris going on with this make. From the front you wouldn’t even know this was made from a suit…The Refashioners 2017 - Emily


Even from the back the only indicator of the origins of this garment is that cheeky welt pocket…The Refashioners 2017 - Emily

When it comes to refashioning there are tweaks and there are transformations. I think this one is firmly in the latter camp!

More pics and details are over on Emily’s blog. 

Stay tuned. We have a whole month of refashioning inspiration coming your way courtesy of a phenomenal line up of stitchers.

  • On Instagram: Share a pic using the hashtags #therefashioners2017  and #suitsyou
  • On Facebook: There is a community board here where you can post your makes (You will need to request an invite to join)

Only entries shared via the above 2 methods will be entered into the competition. Closing date for entries is 31st October 2017 Midnight GMT.

Good luck!!! Get refashioning.

    This is a lovely feminine dress which looks so good in the fabric. Glad to hear someone actually had enough fabric to work with.
