Hello Evelyn! Great concept for a channel! Having worked for many years as a Costume Designer, many of these hacks are familiar. Besides having the necessary skills of sewing and tailoring, you have to be able to see possibilities in a garment that has the proper silhouette- or could result in a period correct silhouette. Knowing about details like seaming, trim, prints and fabrics allows you to zero in on the best garment and assure those results. If you're like me you've spent a lifetime studying, reading, researching and looking at clothing details and the History of Costumes because it is our passion. Finding the right shoe or the right trim is exciting for people like us! Good job!

I have heard alot of costume designers for theaters do refashions like this!! 😀 It's all in the details!!

I once found a 70s wedding dress in a charity shop and turned it into a Georgian gown for the village 18th century street fair, won best dressed lady. It’s was so fun and you have inspired me to try a few more different era’s.

Can you refashion a 1920'2 evening gown? My husband and I are hosting a roaring 20's Gatsby Murder Mystery party. I am supposed to be "Greta Garbled" haha. My character discription says that I should have chiffon on my dress. I want to stay away from the regular flapper dresses everyone wears to these parties, and wear an evening dress, for proper, classy women of that era. I found a dress from the 1980's to try to refashion, and oh how I wish we were friends!! I have no clue where to start!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your channel! I’m so excited to have found you! You are delightful and your vintage designs are amazing! One thing I would like to see is the process of the actual sewing so that I would be able to try your ideas myself. I will be watching all your videos! I hope some of them show the actual sewing instruction. ❤️❤️❤️
Evelyn Wood (4 months ago)
Thanks for watching!! These are meant as more inspirational and to see my process I take in the whole refashion, they are not meant as a step by step tutorial. I decided to make it like this because 1. I felt like no one really shows the creative process and it's hard to learn and 2. every item for refashioning is different so it really hard to replicate exactly a dress you might find to what I did (unlike following directions from a pattern it is the same every time for example). I have done all my longer step by step instructions inside my courses at Vintage Sewing School, I have a course on altering and refashioning if your interested check it out and please send me any questions!

Vibeke Freitag (6 months ago)
Omg Evelyn. Your videos are just so inspiring 😍I took up a whole pile of clothes from the cellar that I wanted to sell on the next flea but now I will try to refashion them instead! 🤔🧐🤨🤓That’s so great. It will definitely not turn out as nice as your dresses but I am going to try. I love your videaos and you just make me smile. You look so sweet and beautiful and I love your humor. Everything is just like taken from a silent movie🎥 awww❤️❤️❤️
Evelyn Wood (6 months ago)
Aww thanks!! I'm so happy to hear your inspired to refashion to!! there is so much we can do with the 'trash' we already own or find in second-hand stores! It's is the best way to get really creative, as you can only use what you have in that garment! Good luck! xx

Would like to know how you tied the burgundy scarf on your head in this video? Great conversation!
Evelyn Wood (8 months ago)
thanks for watching! There was no set pattern in this, just start at the nape and pull the long ties to the top of my head, then tie in a kind of bow and push and pull bits until I liked the way it hangs!
I just discovered you! I love all of your thrift to vintage tutorials, but I find it hard to hear you and concentrate on what you are saying with music playing in the background. It's probably just because I'm old, but it would be even more enjoyable if the music didn't play throughout the video. Just FYI.
Evelyn Wood (8 months ago)
Thanks so much for watching Gayle! I appreciate the feedback! This was one of my first videos, and I have been working on the level of background music as I learn to edit better! I I think I'm getting a better balance! x
Mary Raab (8 months ago)
I'm a novice seamstress. I noticed that you were taking in the sides of the dress and creating darts without measuring them to make sure that you had an equal amount of fabric deducted from each side. Do you do that once you take it off the mannequin? (You mentioned measuring the extended bust darts to make sure that they were even after removing the dress from the mannequin.) Do you use a tracing wheel to mark darts and side seams once you have taken the pins out? What do you suggest? Thank you! :)
Evelyn Wood (8 months ago)
Hi Mary! Yes, I always measure and check darts to make sure they are even!! I just lay them down, one side on top of the other and re-pin to get them even, recheck if you need to, then I just sew right where the pins are! I hope that helps explain a little

LilyoftheValeyrising (10 months ago)
I love this idea! I do the same thing! I make more '50's style than '20's, but I want to! I go thrifting with the mentality 'what can I make with this' attitude. I am wondering how you tied your headscarf, both the red on and the green. I have a bob haircut with layers and rock '50's style pinup curls everyday. I wet set my hair once a week. I'd like to change it up a bit with the headscarf. I love that idea!
Evelyn Wood (9 months ago)
You should definitely try the scarf for something different!!!
LilyoftheValeyrising (10 months ago)
Oh I see the videos on your channel on how to tie scarfs! Thank you!!!!

Cheryl Cooper (11 months ago)
The roaring 20's were almost polar opposite of the shapely decades before and after. It was m least fashoin "like" of them all next to the polyester disco error. No i didn't make a mistake.... i love natural fiber and was a rocker back in the day of disco. :)🤔🤭🤫
Cheryl Cooper (11 months ago)
I have to admit...they were "fresh" but only for a while so no sweat. I was a teen back then. I do like cotton with the little spandex or other natural fibers. Oh and you rock the vintage fashion! The hair scarf is back. Vintages rocks.
Evelyn Wood (11 months ago)
Disco polyester!!! 😀 I like natural fibres too!
Cheryl Cooper (11 months ago)
Excuse my misspelling .

I have 46 1920's dresses to make for an amateur show and didn't really relish the thought. However, after watching your tutorial I am inspired. Thank you for saving my sanity !!! Stitchwitch Linda

Enjoyed your video, especially how you explained the thought process of the redesign. I would enjoy seeing a little more of the actual sewing of the garment. You're one talented lady! TFS.

perhaps a tutorial! It is really simple, it is a long rectangular shape that is just positioned right and tied to the side!
sandy BbrMi (1 year ago)
It's all about that bow you added to the collar! Turned it from a dress for an older woman into one for a young one like you!

Besina (1 year ago)
Gasp ! Turned out really sexy and flattering , very convincing retro refashion !
Besina (1 year ago)
I was given a lot of nice unused vintage clothing - I wear them for opera / theatre already ... in my case I let out another unknown personality of myself - quite funny what it adds to me ! Enjoyed your little personality show while " reenacting " the past times with a smile & l' air de panache !
Besina (1 year ago)
it 's great to be a master on your own regarding self - expression - really liberating , thx for sharing the process ! Subscribed !
Evelyn Wood (1 year ago)
Thanks for watching Besina! yes, just a few changes really transformed this one! And now suits my style!
Constance (1 year ago)
Hello from Connecticut.You are absolutely delightful! I have seen all your videos and have loved them all. I love especially all the good sewing techniques you are teaching. I also love the fashions of the 20's, 30's and 40's, many of which I am selling in my Etsy shop because now I am a few sizes larger. Please keep refashioning thrift store finds, I am learning so much about what I should do to some of my less than wonderful purchases.
LINDA BROWN (1 year ago)
Absolutely beautiful! I love the collar and bow. I always loved vintage fashion. Thank you.

Terinka14 (1 year ago)
Great :) I really like the darting at the back, it really helped with flattering the figure but it still didnt make it look much out of place for 20s... i would probably prefer it without the bow for myself, but that is a simple detail. I love the fluttery sleeves :)
Evelyn Wood (1 year ago)
Thanks for watching! Yes, I didn't dart it too much, just enough to bring it in a little and make it a little more flattering for the modern eye! But still 1920's style!

Perfect. You make sewing look so easy. They say practice makes perfect, I need to start sewing. I've always loved the vintage look. Thank you.

Thank Kia! That is right, practice makes perfect! I have a beginner sewing course coming up soon, stay tuned here or on my social to find out about it! it is perfect for the beginner to get started and learn the basics! I'd love to have you in!
Kathaline Hansen (1 year ago)
do you wear slips/ undergarments? They did back then. See through to bra, as your current outfit, not done. Chemise/camisole correct.
Evelyn Wood (1 year ago)
Hi Kathaline. Yes, I do usually wear slips under my garments, though it is not to be historically accurate as I'm not reenacting history, simply creating my own style based on the fashions of the past. I like to wear slips mostly as It makes skirts sit much better!
My Living Journal (1 year ago)
I am totally impressed! At first, I thought what a plain dress but after seeing it done, it's lovely! Thanks for this awesome video. I just recently found you & your videos are delightful! I love everything vintage. I myself, am vintage. LOL
Evelyn Wood (1 year ago)
Thankyou! Yes, it wasn't a major refashion, but I just love wearing this one now!

Charleston Annie (1 year ago)
bonjour, thank you for a great video, but i do not understand why you made darts ?, i gave u a thumbs up !! i LOVE the 1920s , but i thought the dress was supposed to be straight , hit the knee ; or just below , which was scandalous, and cut your hair to shoulder length (more scandalous ) i am also loving hats - as you can see -but i loved your hair wrap , it was the trend too , along with the cloche . please do more videos, is there a big difference between the 1920 vs 1930 dressing ; merci :)
Evelyn Wood (1 year ago)
Hi Annie, thanks for your comment! I put the darts in because while it is making it less authentic in shape, it suits my very curvy figure more and it's just how I like it to fit. Yes, the 20's look was very straight in dress style adn with the scandalous bobbed hair! As fashion moved into the 30's the shape was become more fitted with bias cuts popular and puffy sleeves! More videos will come! xx

That's the advantage of different eras borrowing styles from older fashions - it makes it that much easier to turn them into the garments you actually want. That being said, it still takes a great eye to see potential in an otherwise unremarkable dress from the seventies! I absolutely loved the final result - that bow was the perfect finishing touch.
Evelyn Wood (1 year ago)
Thanks Katie! Yes, I was hunting around looking for some decorations, and saw this vintage bow I had left over, I knew it would be perfect!

Hi Evelyn! I loved the vídeo so much! You should make more vídeos about how you refashion your clothes! Just a tip: put the dress on before you refashion it, so we can see the before and after! Kisses from Portugal!

Hi, Helena! Thank you so much! Yes, I have more in the works as this is one of my favorite things to do! And thank you for the tip, I didn't realize that I didn't do this AFTER I finished changing it! Stay tuned for more!
