Sometimes in life you need a little push, or a challenge to get your creative juices going. Well this week I'm challenging myself to do something very "Project Runway-esque" type of challenge. Basically, I'm participating in Kid's Clothes Week Challenge where you sew clothing for your kid one hour each day for seven days. Wait there is more, we have a theme drum roll.....the theme is UPCYCLED. I decided to do an early Spring Cleaning in my closet and found seven potentials for this challenge. It's definitely going to be pretty exciting transforming my clothes into something my 9 month old could wear.
Today we kick start with some faux leather leggings I once rocked and felt like a "Rockstar." Those days are long over sadly to say!
Here is a close up of the bias binding.
This was so much fun, refashioning old clothes and giving them a second life. I finally had a chance to try on the peplum on my daughter, it fits almost perfect. The sleeves turned out a little too tight so I will have to unpick those out and make it into a sleeveless top. She wasn't too excited about it she kept pulling it maybe she isn't a fan of the material. Well here she is modeling the design by the way she is also modeling one of the leggings from the previous post. P.S. stop by all week for more upcycled designs.
Here she is being a bit camera shy.
Poor arms :( too tight.
One last picture for the road! :)
