2015 Design / Inspiration Challenge - April

April's Challenge is to reimagine an item. Upcycle a second hand piece, or pull out a failed project and revive it in a new form.

This is kind of the month I've been looking forward to the most, because I love a good upcycle.
To start with, here are a few I've done before.

Before (you'd certainly hope so!)

And after (link here)

Frumpy dress:
 Much better here.

I stole the lining out of Jon's hoodie:

 Made it into a bear. Oh yeah.
Don't worry - I restyled the hoodie too.

For further inspiration - check out the Refashionista

So go out. Get yourself something for April fools. And use your seamster superpowers to make it awesome!

Due Date Tuesday 28th April, I will post the reveal on Wednesday 29th.

PS. May's challenge is to create 3 - 4 mix and match pieces that work together. April should be a quick (re)make, so you can start planning May a little early!
