Refashion: Floral Cut Offs

I saw a cool idea for refashioning some old jeans into a pair of cute cut offs on Zoe’s blog, and thought I’d give it a try. I just so happened to have an old pair of jeans lying around and a holiday in a couple of days to prepare for – the timing was perfect! 

The floral fabric came from an old Get Cutie dress which has been languishing in the back of my wardrobe for too long. It felt good to find a new way to use it. Hooray for refashioning! 
Further pleasure came from the fact that my machine only made one terrifying noise, and the thread only snapped once. Hooray for somehow making that happen!

I’ve just noticed that the legs look different lengths in these photos, they do seem to be ok in real life, though. Or else they fit my wonky legs perfectly. 
In other sewing news: The sundress languishes in a practically finished state somewhere in the flat. The bodice is all baggy, though, and I don’t have the enthusiasm to repair it. My mum says the problem is that I rushed it. I say that this is easy for someone who spent my entire childhood sewing one coat to say.

  1. ACE!!! These look fabulous. So glad you found my refashion post inspiring, thanks for stopping by my blog. Sorry your machine was making terrifying noises, did you change to a denim needle (100/16) for this project? That's the only thing I can think of?

    All the best

  2. Thanks! I'm looking forward to wearing them on holiday this weekend.

    Haha – no, I didn't change to a denim needle. The noise was only on the really thick seam, so also changing the tension of the machine may have helped – ah, hindsight 🙂

    And yes, of course you can feature them on your post.
