Today was a gray day, but without the rain we so desperately need down here. Luckily, my pants were a cheery blue. I've been working on turning clothes I own into clothes I wear and I've had these pants and cardigan for years. I picked up the pants a few years ago on mega discount at Old Navy. They are a nice medium weight but powder blue pants just didn't do much for me - especially with super wide flare. Into the washer they went with some teal dye and out they came - Tiffany blue! I love the new color, springy but not pastel. I stitched a straight leg and now I have some pants I'll actually wear.
The cardigan is even older - I think I picked it up in 8th grade? I still wear it occasionally but thought it could be pepped up. I picked up some polka-dot crepe fabric in the remnants bin and added ruffles to give a bit of romance to this wardrobe staple. A whole new outfit for less than $3? You can't beat that! I'm loving refashioning and I have one of just about every type of garment in my box - any great ideas?
