I’ve seen all of these terms used in the craft blogging world. Whatever you choose to call it–I prefer “re-fashion”–I’ve been doing it. My latest is this. Formerly a 3/4-length sleeved knit top. I loved the grey with black graphic on it. But I have issues with 3/4-length sleeves. I can only wear them about 2 days a year. Give me long or short sleeved, but forget in-between. So I shortened the sleeves and added a beaded pinwheel to the center to jazz it up a bit.
And just so you know, I spent zero dollars on this shirt with the sleeves with which I have issues. I got it at the most fun ever party I’ve been to without my family–a clothing swap that included all kinds of yummy food. Someday I plan to organize one myself.
