Overalls Redeux!


A pair of overall shorts had been sitting in my closet for way too long. And they were begging for an overhaul!

First the reconstruction:

Step One: rip out the crotch seam to back.

Step Two: overlap fabric, create the skirt and trim the excess fabric flap.

Step Three: Stitch the overlap.

Second the embellishing:

Add trims, stamping and embellishments (beads and silk flower)


I added the blingy, skinny belt and a T (not just any T…my “Art Retreat Threads” T!) This overall skirt is so comfy and has just enough arty-ness that I love to wear it in and out of the studio!

Celebrate You…come join me for my workshop “Art Retreat Threads” at Art Is You…Stamford, Saturday, October 10th, 2015. We will have a ball taking garments you have in your wardrobe and transforming into fun, arty and comfy clothes you will want to wear!
