upcycled thursdays: trashion show edition vol. 8

This is the final upcycling outfit! I made a simple pair of cuffed bermuda shorts from some old pants. For the top, I took a plain white t-shirt I had laying around and dyed it blue. I cut off the sleeves of the t-shirt and added the sleeves from the men’s button up shirt in a raglan style. Then I chopped off the sleeves just above the elbow and added some elastic. I loved the final look. It’s tomboy with a feminine twist. Lastly, I made a scarf out of some of the scraps from a dress that I taken apart for previous outfits.

Have you enjoyed seeing all the upcycled outfits from the trashion show? Is there anything you’d like to see a tutorial of? Let me know!

I love all the upcycling posts. It must have been a great show. Congratulations! Btw, do you show the ‘before’ photos as the models come out?

Yes! You can’t tell from the pictures, but there are projectors on both sides of the stage that show the originals. I made the mistake the very first year I did the show of not putting together “before” slides. The audience was very confused :) Live and learn! And for the trashion segment, there are pictures of the materials before I made them into clothes, so the audience knows exactly what is going on. Thanks for the question, Darlene!
