It's back, it's back! The Refashioners is back for 2015 with exciting shirt refashions hosted by the Makery every single day in August. I had so much fun taking part two years ago that it was impossible to turn down Portia's second invitation.
I was super adventurous last time, despite refashioning not being a strong skill of mine, but this year I took a slightly different approach which involved ticking off another #vintagepledge make off my list. There's still plenty of time to sign up by the way, with some great prizes up for grabs!
I picked my own this year and I was delighted when I happened upon this 100% linen Boden shirt for a mere £4.50. It was in tip top condition and although I'm not usually a huge fan of pink, this shade of blush really appealed to me. In a bid to end up with a classic wardrobe staple I turned to 1950s Simplicity 4656. To find out exactly how I did this, hop on over to my post on the Makery!
Instead of facings, I finished my neckline, armholes and hem with stripy bias binding for an extra pop of interest. Pink and navy is such a chic combination and the cherry on top of course, were the matching buttons I stumbled upon on ebay.
