Another quick revamp

I was inspired by Vanessa's post on Wardrobe Refashion a while back where she cut up her old T-Shirt to make a nice fitted number, so I thought I'd give it a go with an old unflattering T-shirt from the Copenhagen Jazz festival I accidentally went to in 1994 whilst in Denmark on a Bromley Youth Concert Band tour (oh happy days!)...

(Please excuse the partially decorated hallway and my miserable face!)




I don't think it was quite as successful as Vanessa's but it's still a vast improvement from before (despite the paint spatters!). Now I've got the (sort of) hang of it I might go and see if I can get some more baggy t-shirts to try again...

Quick trouser revamp

Not my most exciting post, but I got these trousers at a charity shop last week and they were too short and a rather unflattering cut. Cue unsexy picture...


All I did was to lengthen the hem and unpick the sides to make them wider below the knee and it seems to have done the trick. Not bad for three quid! Now all I need to do is get round to ironing out those creases ;o)
