Mans Shirt to Retro Blouse – Sky Turtle Sewing Blog ….
The lovely Ina from Barcelona has done it again – another innovative re-fashioning. Here is an excerpt from her blog …’
“So. Autumn is here and what a better time to go through your closet, see what you like and what you’re not wearing anymore and more importantly – what you could give a new life to. And if your old clothes don’t inspire you anymore trade with a friend. They don’t have to be the same size or even gender as you. You just have to get your hands on garments that will allow you to play a bit. Some fabric scraps, a few pieces of trim and new buttons can sometimes change a garment completely.”
Ina has taken a mans shirt and with some Liberty bias binding and Liberty print buttons has created a great retro look!
House of Alistair Liberty bias, buttons and haberdashery is available on the Sewbox website

Our local Vicar, here on the Suffolk border, has done a bit of re-fashioning herself with Liberty buttons
Happy refashioning ..
