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.
