๐Ÿ…ฟ๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ฟ๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ…ฐ  I make my clothes. Mostly sewing and creative use of second hand materials.

This men's flannel shirt was almost perfect for me, but the hem was too narrow. And I didn't like the shape so I cut it a little before adding the extra pieces of white flannel. I also bleached half of the shirt, but the bleach mostly just removed the blue color so it's not that easy to notice ๐Ÿ˜„ #refashion #upcyclesewing #bleachedflannel #dipbleach #flannelshirt

I made black jeans for him too. So now we have matching outfits! It has been a bit difficult to find fitting jeans for him, but now I found jeans that were big enough at least and I was able to just resize them. And of course add a๐Ÿ“ฑpocket. You can see how I cut them in the last picture. I also sewed darts on the back to make the waist fit better, because that is always a problem in the ready-to-wear jeans. #refashion #sewing #upcyclesewing #secondhandfashion

I made us matching t-shirts and he is so excited! ๐Ÿ˜Š I bought the fabric from @ziccafabrics in sy- & hantverksfestival in Gothenburg. #sewing #ziccafabrics #matchingoutfits

I got my sewing machine back last week ๐Ÿ‘ and was able to finish the black jeans that I was working on when the machine broke. I wanted to make loose fit jeans, because slim fits are so uncomfortable! I got one small pair of jeans from my sister and bought another pair from a charity shop to get enough fabric. I saved the thread from the sideseams and inseams so I didn't need as much new thread for sewing (and didn't have to buy new thread that would have cost more than all the other materials combined) ๐Ÿ˜ Then tried to cut the bigger jeans as little as I could and added what I needed from the small jeans to the sides to get the right size. I also got three extra pockets from the side pieces ๐Ÿ˜„ #refashion #sewing #upcyclesewing #boyfriendjeans #memadeeveryday #therefashioners2018 #inspiredby #sewingismysuperpower

I have been thinking about making my own shoes and last time shopping at @uff_fi I found a great pair to refashion! ๐Ÿ˜ The top was screwed on so it was very easy to change. I just had to add one screw on each side because I wanted to cover my toes more. The leather that I used were from some old upholstery sample and the leather jacket I refashioned earlier. #refashion #upcycledfashion #clogs #recycling #therefashioners2018 #inspiredby

I found this men's sweater last time I went shopping for materials and got the inspiration from @rosie_diycouture to do some painting. The white stripes were a little too white for my taste so I took a paint brush and fabric paint and lightly painted over the stripes ๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ Then cut the top part (above armpits) of the sweater and reshaped the neckline. I would normally have used the sewing machine to finish the collar seam, but now that I only had the overlocker I just had to trust that it would look good. There is a photo of the inside so you can see the stitching isn't perfect but the material hides it well on the outside ๐Ÿ˜ #refashion #sewing #painting #paintedsweater #upcyclesewing #therefashioners2018 #inspiredby

More knits while waiting to get my sewing machine back! The green and pink shirts were second hand and the one with the beach was me-made from probably ten years ago (so a bit small for me now). I wanted to do more color blocking and I found a simple t-shirt design (the last photo) for inspiration from pinterest. #refashion #upcyclesewing #sewingismysuperpower #memadeeveryday #colorblocktshirt #therefashioners2018 #inspiredby

My sewing machine stopped working and it's going to take a few days to fix so now I have to sew things with only my overlock sewing machine. Luckily it's not a problem because I can design garments that don't require a sewing machine ๐Ÿ˜

I bought the striped sweater a couple of weeks ago and decided to use some old sweater pieces (all leftovers from old projects that I posted last year) with it to make a color blocked sweater. The white stripes in the sweater were a bit discolored so I had to cut around them, but there was enough fabric with so many old sweater pieces. I saved the sewing thread from the sleeves for the embroidery (inspired by a friend who likes to wear things with his name embroidered on them) and I was also able to save a turtleneck collar that I can wear with the sweater or with other outfits if I want โ˜บ๏ธ #refashion #upcyclesewing #sewing #therefashioners2018 #inspiredby #colorblocksweater

I got a gift card to @jyvaskylankangaskauppa from my sister @jenkkainen for last christmas and finally used the fabric that I bought with it ๐Ÿป #sewing #tshirt #jyvรคskylรคnkangaskauppa

I found a cool leather jacket from @uff_fi but it was only my size and I didn't know how to refashion it without cutting it too small. Luckily I found another one that was exactly the same color so I had enough material to make whatever I wanted. I tried to find inspiration for the project from pinterest, but most leather jackets looked like the same biker jacket to me ๐Ÿ™„ and finally I decided to use the jean jacket as my inspiration. #therefashioners2018 #inspiredby #refashion #handmadeleatherjacket #upcyclesewing

Two more Juhla Mokka #coffeebagbags ๐Ÿ˜Š You can see the coffee bags in the last photo. #juhlamokka #coffeebagbag #coffeebagweaving #handmadebag #recycling

I found this cool second hand knit jacket and it was my size so I decided to just decorate it a little. The thread is a souvenir from Tokyo. #sewing #refashion #secondhandfashion #quilting
