Light shirt refashion – Camasa mare transformata in fusta

14 May

When I think of spring I think of pink and green and yellow. I know it’s not just me, these colors are basically the announcers of nature’s revival after the harsh and unforgiving winter that , thank God, is now ova’ !

When I found this shirt , what I wrote above was the first thing that had popped into my head.  Beside the cute colors, the fabric is so light and comfortable that makes it so perfect for this time of the year.


Cand ma gandesc la primavara, ma gandesc la roz, verde si galben. Stiu ca nu sunt singura care are acest gand, aceste culori sunt practic cele care anunta restaurarea naturii dupa o iarna grea si necrutatoare, care acum s-a sfarsit.

Cand am gasit acesata camasa , ceea ce am scris mai sus e primul lucru care mi-a sarit in gand. Pe langa culorile sale absolut adorabile, materialul este atat de subtire si comfortabil , ceea ce face camasa perfecta pentru primavara.


This skirt I found on Polyvore and loved the style so much I thought instead of paying 99 pounds for it , I could fashion something myself.


Am gasit fusta pe Polyvore si mi-a placut foarte mut, dar m-am gandit ca in loc sa platesc 99 de lire pe ea , ar trebui sa incerc sa fac eu una asemanatoare.

As you can see , it’s an XXL and it’s also a bit outdated…


Dupa cum vedeti, marimea este XXL iar stilul este putin ramas in urma…


First thing first! These are not needed in this epoch!


Incepem cu inceputul. Buretii nu au trebuinta in aceasta epoca.

Then I sewed the hem for the elastic band and slipped the elastic right in the hem. (I actually never thought I would do this step, because it always appeared to me as difficult , let me tell you, it’s not!)


Apoi am facut tivul pentru banda elastica in care am si introdus elasticul. (Niciodata nu am crezut ca voi face acest pas cu banda elastica , deoarece tot timpul mi se parea atat de dificil, dar pana la urma, m-am inselat, e mai usor decat pare.)


Et voila!
