The final challenge for the Refashion Runway (sponsored by The Renegade Seamstress) is the Pantone Blue color called “Riverside.” It falls very much into the category of faded denim, so I took this direction when completing this assignment. I have made several pieces for this challenge, but I will be posting some of the items separately.
Let’s start with the top of my outfit. I found a denim’ish tank and a lace top which both fit me perfectly. (Tank was $0.99, and top was $3.99)
Then I found this sheer print top for $0.99, which had some Riverside Blue in the pattern.
I began by cutting apart the sheer top to begin making a scarf.
To get as much usable material as possible, I opened up some darts in the body, and then I cut off the plackets on the front. I finally achieved a fairly large rectangle.
I folded the rectangle, pinned, and stitched.
Still wanting more length, I cut the cuffs from the sleeves.
I needed to narrow the scarf a little to match the width of the cuffs.
After narrowing, I pinned and sewed a cuff to each end of my scarf.
This created a fun look, and different from the usual scarf!!!
The only other change I made for my top half was to change out the buttons on the lace shirt. These buttons I had found were larger than the original buttons on the top. But, since I did not need to unbutton the top to get it over my head, I just sewed the buttons to the top where they belonged.
Here’s the final look of some of my Riverside Blue . . . Cute, very little cost, and not much work!!!
Happy Making !
