Cap sleeves and a pocket

A bit of refashioning work today, grabbing spare time when I can. The top is to match with these bright bloomers made a couple of months ago. The purple singlet was a hand-me-down, so I jazzed it up with some cute gathered cap sleeves and a sweet little pocket made out of the same fabric as the shorts. Cap sleeve detail.
Summer seems to have hit us here in Melbourne in a big way these past few days, so it is time to get this summer wardrobe stocked up. This is the complete outfit.
I love a refashion project, making something boring and common into bright, happy and individual. And so quick to complete.


  1. So very sweet! Perfect for a day like today. And tomorrow. And the next day. Arrgh!!!

  2. Cute fabric, Pam and a perfect outfit for the coming weather and playdate tomorrow? See you then!

  3. Cute!! Such a fun combo of prints.

  4. Some super cute refashioning Pam. The cap sleeves are gorgeous - great idea to using the same fabric as the bloomers. And I noticed the double stitching on the sleeve.... and thanks to you, I now own a double needle, as yet unused. But I have it!
