Remember that plain white shirt? Here it is after dyeing it red. What I didn't realise was that the thread wasn't cotton so it stayed white! But it looks good with the white contrasting against the red.
I cut off the big collar and left a small mandarin style one. I shortened the sleeves.
I removed the buttons hoping to replace them with red ones but I didn't have enough in my stash. So I had to sew the original ones back on!
Can you tell I'm rather pleased with it? :-)
Remember this shapeless dress? I unpicked the back darts which were in a weird place and chopped the bottom off.
Summery floral tunic style top!
An M&S cotton wrinkle dress 2 sizes too big, weird colour combination and one of the straps was actually sewn twisted!! I removed the bottom layer and re jigged the straps.
I would have liked to alter the bodice but it's asymmetrical and one side has a zip. Don't think I'd wear it in public but good for pottering round the garden.
None of the above cost me a penny as they were all donated by my lovely mum. Even the red dye was free!
Can't beat free clothes :-)
