Floral Scrub Refashion // from trash to treasure

The other day I ran into to DI to find something for another refashion swap (!), and I came out instead with a floral scrub top, and an orange coat for me. Whoopsy!

I wish I taken a better before (yikes my mirror is filthy!), but it was your typical a-typical scrub top. A lively print and not green, but the same boxy shape with the quintessential v-neck. I basically reconstructed the whole shirt, because I knew it would be easier to get the fit just right if I cut it all up and used a pattern. I used the same rub-off pattern that I made for this shirt, but made it slightly more fitted on accident. It came together super quick because I didn’t have to hem the sleeves or cut the neck band (I used the same one), and I’d say the whole thing took about a half hour.  I added the pocket which may have been the wrong decision (not a perfect match), but I still like it. Just do.

And now , dearies, take a looksy and appreciate these delightful little booties that I snagged from my MIL’s dress-up collection. Dress me right up, they will. The tiniest bit tight but worth the squeeze. Love. Thanks Meredith! (and Margaret!)

I know, right?? I was super excited about them when I sister in law told me that she’d fished them out of the dress up bin but they didn’t fit her, so I was the lucky recipient!

I must know how to re-make the copy of those Shade shirts we both have. They are the only shirt I want to wear and I want to know how to do the neckline properly. Any chance you’re making a tut or pattern?

Yes!! Actually, I’m planning a big series in the November that will cover everything you could ever want to know about sewing with knits. It’s going to be dope, and I just used that word!
