Check out - The Button Up Refashion Swap!

Recently I've noticed an awesome refashion swap sweeping across the blogosphere and in case you aren't following these lovely ladies blogs you might have missed it.

As well as showing their refashions for fellow bloggers, many of these ladies included tutorials to makeover your own mens shirt.

Men's shirt to fancy outfit in ... 1... 2.... 3....

Check out the refashion post on Adventures in Dressmaking for a dress or Melissaesplin for a great maternity top.

See the other refashions done by all the bloggers involved:
- See Kate Sew made a jumper outer the shirt
- Sunni of A Fashionable stitch - made a box blouse (pic below)
- Jen of Grainline studio made a scalloped sleeveless top
- Miranda from One little minute  refashioned two shirts into a dress
- Cotton and curls made a square top, with peter pan collar and stenciled sailboats!
- Madmin made a coquette peplum blouise which she then dyed beautifully.
- Megan Nielson made a really pretty shirt with pleats
- Krista of Lazy Saturdays made a skirt

(I've linked to all the refashion original posts so they are easy to find. I'm reposting this abit late but am definitely going to check out a few of these tutorials. My sewing machine needs dusting off and erm, checking to see if the tension works!)

Hope you go and check out these awesome blogs and give these ladies some love. There's so much variety in this refashion, something for everyone, it is very inspiring!

Hope your all having a good weekend.
I'm off to practise my tatting
