I recreated the gray shirt month ago, but I thought it was still need some works, now I updated it again here.
The grey shirt looked like a grandma’s daily shirt, but the shirt made of silk! Silk was the reason I thought it is worth to try.
I did not want to do big change on the shirt, but had to change the collar. First step: took the collar off.

The cotton sweater could be a good black canvas to recreate anything I like, it is long and blank, and full of potential!
I drew some circles on both sides first.
Then started hand stitches from the center of circle.
Just keep working on different designs of hand stitches around the circles.
It looks like this when I finish on side!
both sides done!
Also hand-stitches on the sleeves to match the design.
Love it! It is so much better than blank black sweater before, I am so glad for the finish, I hope I have change to wear it sometimes!
I always like corduroy, the texture and thickness of corduroy always make me think back to my childhood.
This cloth was well made, but I was not sure how often I will like to wear it because of the style. But if I could change it to a long shirt like a wind coat, I am sure it would be more useful in the fall.

I love natural material, when I see something made of linen or silk, I can not turn my eyes away. This linen shirt has jean’s feel , looks very simple but still cool. I just think it will be better to add some thing to it.
The simplest stitch should match it’s style I thought,

This size M red silk top contains nice features, but it is a little too small for me. I was not sure of the collar either. I had to tear off both side and add to two black strips to make the bust wider.
Here is finish of the strips, so pretty!

I liked the patten and the fabric, which is 100% cotton. But I am not sure if I would want to wear such a long skirt during this hot summer weather, this easy makeover is very simple, everyone can try as long as you have a sewing machine.
First, cute the length you prefer, I cut it 2 inches above my knees, which left about 12″ to make ruffs on the buttom.
How to lock the loose edge without a serger? I used #30 on the swing machine to enclosed the loose edge, and it worked.
