With Spring well on it’s way here in Melbourne, it’s time to start thinking about Emma’s summer wardrobe. This Swing Top that I’ll be showing you how to make today, is one of my quick ‘go to’ refashion designs when Emma needs something a little nicer than a t-shirt to wear. It’s really so easy to make, and the flowing, breezy design is lovely to wear in warm weather. Keep the length short to make a top, or go longer and you have a dress.
I found this original shirt in an op-shop and bought it because I loved the tea cup print and feel of the fabric (it’s silk), but the garment design was awful and boxy so it was perfect for refashioning. This refashion isn’t limited to kids clothes, you could also use the same technique to modify a blouse for yourself.
