    Hard to chose, but I took an inexpensive pair of plain drapes and made them into valances for the entire family room. 4 windows in all. Less expensive then buying them individually and they worked perfectly.

    i took two beach towels . and made a bath robe with them. it was to big and i then had to take it in. that also was my first project for sewing in about 35 years.

    I took a bridesmaid dress from my sister’s wedding and cut it off to tea length and re-hemed it. I did not like the pastel pink color, so I attempted to dye it a deep violet. It was a horrible flop. The dress had a sick tie-dye effect. I do believe this was the first and last attempt at fabric dying but not my last at re-fashioning discarded but usable clothing! My motto is Re-purpose, not recycle!

    I felted old sweaters, cut them apart and reassembled them into a patchwork jacket. Turned out great!

    My best was making a drawstring tote out of cut off brushed denim pant legs.

    Took a baby blue tablecloth and 12 napkins and dyed it turquoise. They were made in Syria with lots of embroidery. I made an Indian style salwar pants with the 12 napkins by piecing them together and then made the long top with the tablecloth. The fabric looks great. The gold threads stayed gold and the other embroidery threads took the fabric dye darker. Looks fantastic.

    Made a linen tablecloth into a peasant blouse. Dyed the fabric with tea. Turned out great.

    My best re-fashion project was turning an adult sweater into a dress from my daughter. It turned out cute and she loved it.

  9. MelodyJ says:

    I haven’t done one yet.

    Love taking an article of clothing anyone can wear and refurbishing it to something orignial only I would wear. Replacing the buttons with one of a kind, adding topstitching, bedazzling, embelishing and fashioning to suit our personalities.

    Changed a Christmas velvet dress into a medieval costume for a medieval theme wedding. Everyone else paid tons to rent a costume.

  12. Jane C. says:

    My best was using two men’s dress shirts to make into an apron. My worst was using hankies to make a skirt. I worked on it until 3am. In the morning I discovered most of them were upside down or wrong side out. Never again!

  13. Kimberly Corbett says:

    I tried to make a mans shirt into a cute shirt for me. It still hasn’t turned out right, but I will keep trying. I love Marisa’s website and would love her book even more. She does amazing things.

  14. Inita Bermudez says:

    My worse outfit I made is when I forgot to was my knit fabric before I made It. After washer it, it fit my 6 year old niece.

  15. Amy S says:

    I fought this awful, floor-length mumu with long sleeves and sequins everywhere for $5 at a flea market. The color was perfect for me, though. After some seam ripping, cutting, and re-sewing, it is a chic, sparkly top!

  16. Loretta Tejkl says:

    Tried to refub a maternity pair of overalls into a pair of capris.

    I attempted to refashion my husband shirt into a skirt and I have fail. I need a pattern to do it rather to cut it freely.
