I had never heard the term "upcycle" until recently through the wild world of blogging I am sure all of you already know about this, but for any of you who need an explanation like I did; it is when you take something plain, old, or plain old ugly and make it new. It is like recycling but with more work. This is a new concept for me. I am trying to make my life more and more sustainable, but I don't usually re-do old things. I give them away (or throw away if appropriate). And when I sew, I sew from scratch.
In late February, I decided to give it a try. I had some outdated uniforms laying around (I don't know why I saved them) and decided to make something for my eldest, Abi.
- shinny buttons can bring a dull outfit to life
- sailor pants are fun and pretty easy once you learn how
Can it be done?
