I used an old dress that was a favourite and worn LOTS!
But is sadly now too small..
I simply cut a strip from the body...
Attached a piece of elastic half the width to either side..
Then wrapped the band around the outside of the elastic, and while stretching it sewed it in. And also sewed the other side to hide the raw edges!
I then added some circles of the fabric, folded into quarters and secured in the middle with a button, to add a little extra embellishment to the headband!
(Sorry, I got a bit carried away, and forgot to take pictures of those steps!)
Come back tomorrow for my next clothes upcycle - I'm a week in, and 3 more to go! Lots of ideas flowing - some great ones yet to come!
