147. You like the tutorial. You *really* like the tutorial!

Hello again from Las Vegas!

Forever and two days ago, I put together a men's shirt refashion tutorial in Flickr. It seems like forever ago because it's been really busy the last 3 months, and I haven't passed on to you links to other refashioned garments that resulted from that tutorial. So, at long last, here they are. Please click over to these great folks' blogs and leave some love as you feel it. After all the ideas and inspiration I've found on the Web, it's nice to know I've started paying it forward in some small way.

[BTW: If you shared your creation with me and I haven't listed you below, it's because I have been flaky and am not keeping track of your updates very well! If you can excuse my flakiness and leave me a comment here with a link to your project, I will post your project soon with a link to your tutorial-inspired refashion.]

In order of notifying me of their brand of refashion coolness and hotness:

  1. Allison of Heinous Shrew
  2. Rachael at Benbo Loves You
  3. Zaza at DU-MAN (with a tilde over the n... how to do this on my keyboard...?)
  4. Interrobang
  5. Christine L at Kale and Clover

And FYI, I don't sew little girls' clothes, but now I'm inspired to! These are all over the blogosphere but in case you haven't seen them yet, check out Dana's men's shirt refashions for girls. Warning: cuteness factor off the charts.


  1. every time I visit your blog I get so much information in one post... thanks!

  2. You are a busy lady.
    Thank you for the blog shout out.
    Coming from the clever girl, that's a huge compliment!

  3. Clever Girl, I am totally impressed with the shirt refashion. Maybe I can make me one....

  4. Ideas for clevergirl tutorials: men's shirt recon into blouse/dress with sleeves or that adorable powder blue Chanel-inspired dress...

  5. sigh...and my refashioned shirt is still just a bunch of pieces. Maybe when it's warmer and I can anticipate wearing the finished product...

  6. It makes me wish that I'd known how to do this when my girls were little!

  7. Thank you for that link to Dana's blog Made. Totally off the charts cute factor.

  8. You are such a sweetheart! Thanks so much for the original tutorial and thanks AGAIN for mentioning me on your blog! My increased readership (aka 3 people!) has definitely inspired me to post more, which in turn inspires me to create more.

  9. Hi! I just wanted to say hello and thanks for doing what you do. I enjoy reading your blog so I thought I would pass along a little love in the form of the One Lovely Blog Award.

  10. They say imitation is the sincerist form of flattery... but there's been some innovation with the imitation. Great creativity all around.
