PR&P sew along : Week #3: Refashion Challenge

Wow! Week#3 of Project Run&Play's theme is Refashion Challenge, which I happy accepted :). I usually did refashion for my girl especially for the knit project because I can not easily find the place to buy knit here. Online stores now have a lot of pretty knits but the shipping cost to Thailand could cost me arms and legs. So, refashion is my best friend.

Refashion: Pippa peplum top & V-neck cardigan
This time, I made two tops for the girl. The first is a sweet Pippa peplum top from SeeKateSew which I made from t-shirt size XL.

I love how it turned out! It looks like something I would bought from store. Normally, the girl doesn't like to wear white-tee but with the girly skirt part + bow sequin + gold trim, this top can win her.

Girly twirly little skirt blown her mind
I made the Pippa peplum in size 4T and it fits her perfectly. I'm sure this top will get worn very often.

I've also made the V-neck cardigan from Peek-a-boo from my old cardigan. The winter has already gone from Bangkok and this cardi is expected to wear in air-condition room through the year. So, I made it in the bigger size to leave the room for growing up.

Refashion V-neck cardigan
I decorated my little v-neck cardigan with lace collar and trim. To get the girl's attention, I also selected the flowers buttons to suit her taste.

After we finished our photo shots. The girl was still wearing her new top to play around. I've got the true shot of her while she was playing. As much as she love girly details on her outfits, the girl still has little monkey attitude inside. Oh! I love this pat of her.

The girl's natural post.
As I told you I usually did refashion, I would rank my works here for example.

My top 3 refashion projects which I like most....

First, the Nituna Jacket from old blanket and tablecloth.

2nd, The up-cycled recess raglan tee

3rd, My tablecloth mullet skirt

You can see a lot more fascinating refashion works which post in PR&P blog this week. The designers works are awesome!

Hope you enjoy all these. I'm so happy you are stopping by and please don't hesitate to leave your comment.

Piglet (Reversible) Romper For Sewalong @ PR&P, Week2

PR&P, Week2 : Let's go to the movies!
This theme made me realize how long that I have not seen any movie. Think about my favorite one was come up with something like Lord of the ring, Star war or others 10 years ago-movies. Which I'm not sure the girl would happy with the outfit inspired by any of them or not.
So, I designed to ask the girl which character she like most. Here the answer is from her favorite story, the pink little pig from 100 acre wood, PIGLET!

Cottage mama's Shortcake romper for Piglet
This piglet romper is made with The cottage mama Shortcake reversible romper 's pattern. I thought silhouette of this romper would comply with piglet outfit.

Do I look like Piglet?
 I want to make easy to go outfit which the girl can wear everyday not the special dress. So I didn't make Piglet costume. Just bring color and strips to give personality for this romper.

Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger and me playing in the 100 acre wood...
The girl was happy with her Piglet romper and I hope one day she will enjoy to go to the movie with me again! Her first experience with movie was when she went to planetarium with me... It was a bad experience for her since she was scream and believe that the comet will fallen to her head. (unfortunately the planetarium program was about the comet impact that day)

The pattern is intend to make as a reversible romper and I did another side in coordinate color with the cat applique at front.

I like this side with the applique but the girl prefers Piglet side. At least we both happy with the result.

 The only inconvenience about this romper is the girl can not go to toilet by herself. It needs adult supervise to take off or tide up the bow tide at the shoulder.

Happy ending!
 Well, which side of the romper that you like most?? :)
Thank you for stopping by. I love to hear from you.
