TShirt Refashions and Recycled Fashion Finds #53

Friday, August 24, 2012

Before we begin with this week's Recycled Fashion Finds link up, I wanted to share with you, a couple of really clever ideas on ways to refashion t-shirts into much prettier, less boring garments, as seen by Love Flow Creations on Refashion Co-op.

Love Flow Creations' T-shirt Poncho


To make her t-shirt poncho, Missy has removed her t-shirt sleeves, and cut open on the sides.  The t-shirts have been cut into rectangles and attached to the sides, and the bottom of the main t-shirt rectangle.  The sides are then stitched from the bottom to most of the way to the top leaving a space for your arms to go through.  Missy explains her inspiration is designer CreoleSha.

Love Flow Creations' T-shirt Sleeve Petal Skirts

Missy's a-line skirts are really clever.  The base is made from a tank top, and the skirt's petals are made from t-shirt sleeves.  She's cut open t-shirt sleeves that she had leftover from previous refashions, which are turned upside down, and sewn in overlapping rows.  A fantastic idea way of using sleeves cut away from old restyled t-shirts, that could otherwise be thrown out.

Thank you for letting me share your ideas on Recycled Fashion Missy!

I love the refashioned top - it has a slouchy sort of hippy feel to it. Great for lounging round the house on a Sunday morning :-)
