Book Review::Refashion by Alyssa Devanny

Alyssa Devanny of Refashion released a wonderful book right up the Craft Leftovers ally. Everything in the book is repurposed, reworked, and well! You guessed it refashioned from clothing and scraps of fabric.

The 10 projects inside this book have detailed, step-by-step illustrations and have been designed with beginners in mind. The materials are readily available from your own wardrobe or charity store.

‘Refashion’ is an invitation to stop buying and start shopping in your own wardrobe”

The instructions are very clear and the projects give you a lot to work with. Not only are there directions for the specific projects, but you learn skills that will give you the confidence to cut, snip, sew, and crochet your other wardrobe items in unique ways.

I love the cardigan project and the little girl jumper is so cute! I really love all the projects too, but I don’t want to give too much away. You can pick up your very own copy here in the Refashion shop

And don’t forget to check out the Refashion etsy shop where you can get finished items to jazz up your style – in a great eco friendly way too!

I just love her cute dresses for little girls, they are just about too cute to stand and shipping is only $4 all the way from Australia! Completely doable.

And I have a surprise for you, Alyssa has shared a great tutorial with me that will be released this Friday! A super cute dress made out of a pillowcase!

  1. I love refashioning! I was a member of Wardrobe Refashion for a long time (until my sewing machine broke, lol!). :)

  2. Hi Kristin,
    I know it’s been a couple of years since this post, but I can’t find this book anywhere!  I’ve googled it, checked your links, looked at my library and the Search Ohio link to my library.  The only place I’ve not looked yet is WorldCat.  Any ideas?  The etsy link is up – maybe I’ll contact Alyssa there and see.
    Love the joliprint option!

  3. Hmm, that’s really too bad. Looks like she let her domain laps. It might not be for sale any more. But I bet if she has a pile of copies left, she’s be happy to sell you one via paypal :) I’d contact her through etsy and see if you can get a reply. Or actually, wait a tick. I’m going to send you an email. I have a hunch where I can get you a copy :)

  4. Do you still have this information? I’d like a copy also.

    Thanks!

    Mary :)
