Tops into dress

30 Jan

When you look at someone or  something , you know how to estimate its level of potential. Looking at a white sheet of paper , you can estimate how much you can write on it , when you take a rubber band , you can estimate just how much it will stretch before it will burst. I found that this hobby of sewing demands a certain level of estimating.

In this case , I found a nice blouse. It is an Esprit. The fabric is perfect , It doesn’t appear to have been worn , except it features a big , ugly brown stain ……


Cand te uiti la cineva sau ceva , deobicei sti cum sa estimezi potentialul sau.Privesti spre o bucata de foaie goala si cam sti cat scris ar intra pe ea , iei in mana o banda elastica si iti dai seama cat de tare poti sa o intinzi pana la punctul de rupere. Am aflat ca si in ale cusutului e nevoie de o anumita cantitate de “sa iti dai seama cam cat”.

In acest anumit caz , am gasit o bluza draguta. E firma Esprit. Materialul este superb , nu are nici un semn de uzura , in afara unei pete mari, maro si urate …….

……right about there.


……..aflate cam acolo.


This other polo was worn and abused in its lifetime, and except for a rug , until this refashion , I was in doubt whether I could use it for something. It works with the turquoise blouse because of the complementary color palette.


Acest tricou polo a fost purtat si abuzat pe durata vietii sale. Zacea in spatele dulapului, fara un rost , fiindca in afara de covor, chiar nu aveam nici o idee ce sa fac cu el. Apoi am gasit ca este o culoare complementara bluzei Esprit si adaugate pot forma ceva dragut.


From what I cut , the scraps came back from their ashes and transformed into this large pocket , making the dress more interesting.


Din ceea ce am taiat din bluza , resturile s-au ridicat din cenusa si s-au dovedit ideale pentru un buzunar mare si larg, mi se pare ca face totul mai interesant.
