The past six weeks have been a little stressful at times, and yet I feel like I have accomplished so much in that short span. I have pushed myself to learn and try new things. I've been inspired by the other contestants' and readers' refashions. I've had some late nights putting the finishing touches on my projects to make the deadline. It's been such a blast, and I wouldn't trade the experience for anything.
In case you missed any of them, you can check out the details for any of my entries - and see what I was up against each week - via the links below.
Week 1: Plaid Challenge
I took one of my husbands seldom-if-ever-worn shirts and turned it into a drapey-front, button-back top for me!

Week 2: Emerald Challenge
I used a frumpy emerald green skirt with a gold brocade design to create a tulip dress with pockets and a peek-a-boo back.

Week 3: Peplum Challenge
I drafted my own pattern to turn this huge handmade denim dress into a not-so-huge handmade denim dress.
Week 4: Leather Challenge
I combined a too-small suede skirt and a too-large tee into a waterfall jacket.
Week 5: Halloween Challenge
Using freecycled formal wear, I created Cinderella's original ball gown.
Week 6: Winter White
A prom dress, lace tee, and the top portion of the wedding dress above went into making this holiday party dress, whose three pieces can be work together or individually for lots of different looks.
