  1. Thanks for featuring my skirt, Jill. I have a bunch of shirts here waiting to be refashioned.

    1. You're very welcome Pam! Looking forward to seeing what else you're going to come up with to refashion shirts!

  2. Lovely projects on board, Jill!
    The dresses look very appealing (pity I don't like to wear dresses). And very cute combination on Pam's skirt!

    Cheers from WA:)
