After several fairly successful attempts at upcycling and refashioning clothes, I have come to one conclusion: The entire process takes a lot longer than making something out of brand new fabric. For the past couple of times, I spent more time picking out old seams and circumventing existing features like faux buttonflys when cutting it down than the actual time spent to sew it. ARGH.

But hey, all in the name of being eco-friendly right? Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
(Also I’d hate to admit it, but I am somewhat reluctant to cut into the pristine beautiful fabrics in my growing stash for fear of screwing up the sewing.)

This one’s still my fave one so far, winning boring “size-down pants for boys” projects with its gorgeous purple hue and girlish gown look.
