Oh my oh my! I like a pocket it’s fair to say. I also like ALL the greys. So Wendy’s take on this challenge has me getting all unnecessary and plotting a blatant rip off of this idea!
With four pockets and blocking both in texture and “colour” (shades of grey)…I am seriously in love with this coat…
This is one of those makes that retains the integrity of the original garment(s) in a subtly quirky way. A kind of understated uniqueness..
But as you’ve probably realised by now, the understated subtlety of this coat is contrasted by the amount of work that has gone into it. And as always from Wendy, you can expect the insides of this to be as beautiful as the outside 😉
For more pics, an interesting read, a giveaway (yesss!) and lots of detail hop over to Wendy’s blog !
Two more days of the blogger element to go and then it’s over to you guys!! Eeep! So excited to see what you come up with. Been seeing some tantalising sneak peaks from you on social media already as well as the first completed entries coming through!
So….are you in??
If you fancy getting your refashion on, but are in two minds about whether to enter this year’s community challenge;
- Check out our pinterest board for inspiration
- Check out the amazing prize package (yes you could win all that!)
- Go grab a suit and dive in!
….If you haven’t familiarised yourself with what the actual challenge is yet, essentially we want you to refashion an old, unworn or unloved suit! Simple as that! What counts as a suit you say? Definition here!
Man’s suit. Ladies suit. Doesn’t matter. Interpret how you see fit. If you’re breathing new life into a suit that would otherwise go unworn or be thrown away, THAT’S what counts.
BUT, if you want to be in with a chance of winning one of these amazing prize packages you’ll need to SHARE that refashion with us in one of the following ways:
- 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.
Oh and by the way…The Refashioners is going on the road this November!! If you fancy attending our very first “in person” workshop in London on 4th November….full deets here!!
