I love making things. It's that simple. About a year ago I decided to try not to buy new clothes. Instead I bought a sewing machine. I'm still working my way through my old wardrobe (and several other people's too) reconstructing garments. This blog shows some of my work. Whenever possible I've linked to the online tutorials and websites that have inspired me. In turn, I hope that this blog will be an inspiration to others to recycle, remake and recreate.

This was just one of those things that once I had the idea I had start immediately (despite the fact that I have a huge backlog of half completed projects).
So the top part is from the Danielle pattern and the bottom is a simplified Kasia Skirt. I kind of blended the waistbands from the two patterns together. I had expected to need to move the zips on both patterns to the side, but since the fleece has a bit of stretch, I was very pleased to discover I didn't need one at all. I also eliminated the front flap on the Kasia so the buttons are purely decorative and the pockets joined so it's like one big pouch at the front. The pocket fabric is from an old dress.
