Ja jūs esat čakla saimniece un protat šūt, tad, visticamāk, parasti jūs izmantojat savas prasmes apģērba labošanā – piešujat notrūkušo pogu vai piešujat kādu apģērba elementu pēc vajadzības.
Taču trīs bērnu māte Sāra Tjao nolēma rīkoties radikālāk, jo viņa māk pārvērst jebkuras nevalkājamas drēbes par skaistu, modernu apģērbu vai elementu, ko diemžēl nekad nenopirksim veikalā. Sāra ir spējīga transformēt jebkuru apģērbu – sākot no kāzu kleitas, beidzot ar vilnas mēteli. Un šīs izmaiņas ir tik atšķirīgas, ka brīžiem šķiet, it kā tas ir pavisam cits materiāls un viņa mūs apmānījusi.
✨I need your opinion!✨ Two years ago, I attended a blogger event at our new local thrift store where we all got to pick out an item to upcycle, to be entered into a competition. As I was rummaging through the dress section, as soon as I lifted this dress out of the rack and looked at it, I had a vision of the after and knew this was to be the one. It takes me about 5-15 seconds before I have a vision of the "after" and very rarely does my mind change from that vision. But this one, I initially envisioned the lace to be around the v-neck but I changed my mind to have the lace be on the sleeves instead(the lace is recycled from the giant white collar). Do you like where the lace ended up? Thankfully, the thrift store thought so and I won 1st place in the competition. And I held a monthly class there where people could bring me their outdated clothes and pick my brain on ways to refashion and I demonstrated some of my refashions as well. It was so fun! . . This idea literally just came to me, like literally after posting this photo and writing the above caption, but I'm thinking about adding a new series on my new YouTube channel called "Refashion Revision"(I literally just thought of the name too, do you want me to say "literally" one more time?) where I go shopping at the thrift store and I have someone else pick out several items and then surprise me with it, and it'll show me seeing the items for the first time and then sharing my vision for the after, impromptu style. I wouldn't see the clothing item before I video it, it'll totally be raw, right-then-and-there ideas of my vision of how I'd refashion it. Good idea? Bad idea? Would you watch it? #sarahsDIY
One of the easiest DIY's I've ever done, simply add lace to the dress and viola! A whole new dress! For this piece I was featured on the front cover of Altered Couture & a 3-page spread and on Sew, a U.K. magazine ➡️ swipe to the right.

You guys loved my XL men's shirt into a girls dress so here's another one! A XL men's shirt ➡️ girls crop top + skirt. I turned the fabric around and had the buttons in the back of the crop top & the skirt, and the pleats in the front of the top. Not pictured but I also made a headband using the collar, the collar just happened to be the same exact circumference as my girl's head!
