Remix'd: Crop Top + Printed Pockets

    |
fabric pockets {who is that girl Mo?}
You can create anything from old clothing especially if it is over-sized. It can also be used as a cheaper alternative to buying fabric. I thrifted this maxi dress and out came a crop top and fabric covered pockets on a pair of cut offs . My first idea was to make a two piece short or skirt set but I needed a much larger sized dress. I still like how this turned out because it's still a 2 piece set.

Supplies:
fabric or printed clothing item
scissors
chalk
iron
liquid stitch
  • Cut out two big squares from the fabric.
  • Place the square right side up on top of the back pocket.
  • Trace around the edges of the back pocket.
  • Fold back the edges of the square about 1/4 in away from the marked lines.
  • Press down flat with iron around the folded edges or hems.
  • Apply liquid stitch to the edges of the back pocket.
  • Press the new fabric pocket onto the denim pocket.
  • For the top cut about 1 inch longer than desired length and double hem.
