Without further ado… the third edition of the Restyling Exchange is here! Last year’s Restyling Exchange was a great success – with over 60 participants from 10 countries and 3 different continents. How could we not bring it back this year?!Click here if you would like to continue reading
It’s that time! Pilar and I have been pouring over all of your amazing makes and we just can’t believe the amazing work y’all have done!
It’s BAAAACK!!!! Last year’s Restyling Exchange was such a great success – with over 40 participants from all over the world. How could we not bring it back this year?!
Our hopes for this year’s restyling exchange is to get even more participants, raise awareness for refashioning and being sustainable in our sewing practice, as well as add a few fun new elements to this years challenge.
How bad of a host am I to JUST NOW be posting the restyle I received for the Restyling Exchange 2017!? I have to admit it was a bit of poor planning on my part. I was out of town for the reveal weekend and once I missed the posting party I just let it all fall by the wayside. Never the less I am so excited to share this with you. Last week, my restyler Sophie shared her process for restyling this dress for me. Be sure to check it out if you haven’t already. Read on for my take of this fun refashioned vintage dress.
Guys I’m so excited to introduce the oh-so-talented Sophie Hines of Sophie Hines lingerie and the ever so popular Euler Bralette Pattern (I’m seriously dying to make one of those). She was my restyler for the Restyling Exchange 2017 and today she is going to take you behind the scenes and share her prices for restyling my beautiful vintage dress. Next week I will be sharing my take on receiving this lovely dress (and mostly just sharing pictures of me happily dancing around in it). I was going do do a combo post but Sophie’s was so well written and it would have been CRAZY long so lets hear from Sophie first. Keep reading for all the goodness!
Y’all! I am so stinkin’ excited to finally be posting about this project! It’s the first annual RESTYLING EXCHANGE!! (insert fanfare + confetti). Pilar and I have been working on this for a month or so now and the anticipation has been building and the time is finally here to share it with you lovely folks. As you all know I am a huge fan of refashioning, and I also love all the fun instagram parties & hashtag prompts that show up throughout the year.. so I’m super pumped to be starting up this new instagram swap with the lovely Pilar Bear.
