I've joined The Refashioners!

Firstly, I have to say a HUGE 'thanks' to all of you who commented on my Elisalex - your kind words have literally made my week! Today, you can find me over at Miss P's flexing my refashioning muscles - which is ironic really as until now, I've never actually refashioned anything in the real sense of the word! But I became a huge fan of Portia's series The Refashioners when it originally unfolded in 2011, so I said 'yes' immediately and then broke into a cold sweat later. I'm so glad I took on this challenge though, because I totally surprised myself - thank you Portia for the opportunity!

I'll leave you with some cheeky photos, but to find out exactly how I turned a huge men's shirt into an edgy blouse, hop on over here! And if you pop back here tomorrow, I'll be sharing a step-by-step tutorial on creating the cut-out feature.
