|day 29| Refashion Month Gues: Kaitlin from Wunderbar

Again, found Wunderbar by sweet Kaitin, through Refashion Co-op community. I loved her style, and besides that, I enjoyed a lot her small link party. Because it was a small one, we did really visit each others and get to know great refashionists. 

Hello! I'm Kaitlin from Wunderbar. I've been sewing since I was a child, but it wasn't until last summer that I realized the power of refashioning. I've had so much fun learning new techniques, opening my eyes to see different possibilities, and getting to know the incredibly gifted ladies of the Refashion Co-op. Thanks, Magda, for inviting me to join in on the fun! 
This was one of my early projects, but it's remained a favorite. 
This project was born when I fell in love with an over-priced Anthropologie dress and decided to recreate it for a fraction of the price. It turned out to be even simpler than I imagined!
I found an oversized denim dress at the thrift store for $4…
Then shortened the dress to the length I wanted the back (the front becomes slightly shorter in the next step) and took in the sides. 
To create the shirtdress look, I cut out one side to get the desired effect. (I played with pins first to make sure the arch was the right height – the nice part about creating your own shirtdress is you can make it a length that looks good on you! My arch was 4.5" at its tallest point, and it tapered to 1.5" in the front.)
I then pinned this cut out shape to the other side, cut again, and hemmed to finish the bottom. To finish the look, I made faux rolled cuffs and a belt from the excess fabric I cut off the bottom.
Take that, Anthro!
