Make and Mend 2011: Repurposed Romper

June 8, 2011

Hi Sew Retro!  As part of another bloggers’ project to repurpose one item of clothing, I made this vintage-inspired playsuit out of a Burda dress I made years ago and never wore.

Before:
Photobucket

After:
Photobucket

The fabric is vintage seersucker from a friends’ collection, and I was always sorry I wasted it on a dress I never wore (or finished!) 

More details and pictures on my blog!

  1. Between this and your dresses, I think I might have to rob your sewn wardrobe 🙂 JK, don't worry! But I do love it! Very, very cute!

  2. I did the same with a seersucker..a dress I never wore..you have inspire me to chop it up..mmm what to do with it!
    lovely job by the way:)
    I'll post my restyle before and after..
