I love a good clothing refashion! In fact, my friend Jen (from Tatertots and Jello) and I recently started a blog called Refashion Files. The topic is just as it sounds. We are always looking for the best in clothing re-dos, upcycles and refashions! Honestly I think the children’s ones are the cutest (maybe because they are small), so I’ve pulled together a collection of my favorites. One that I really think is brilliant is this pants to jumper refashion by Katy. This would be perfect for going back to school! Click through the jump to see my other picks!
