homemade clothes

Between watching Project Runway and reading all these different blogs, I've been thinking about sewing my own clothes, or recycling old clothes into something new.  So I've decided to give it a shot with this tunic style shirt. While I've sewn a few dresses for Ella, I have not made anything from a pattern for myself.   Maybe I can finish it for the weekend...  
I've found a few blogs that have tutorials for how to recycle old clothes, and since I always have a Goodwill pile, I'm going to try it out.  Check out At Second Street, especially the hat at the bottom of the page - it's made from an old t-shirt! Now I'm looking at my Goodwill pile in a new light, wondering about the possibilities for Ella and Brice. 


  1. Do you have a photo of the finished product? I'll take a suit and blazer please.
