Restyle or Refashion; What's The Difference?

I may have been using incorrect terminology in some of my previous posts.  I didn't want to mislead anyone; so I have looked up the definitions.

Restyle = to style again or over.... I like # 5 in the link below:  "a mode of fashion, as in dress, especially good or approved fashion; elegance; smartness"

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/restyle

Refashion = to remake or alter.... the definition below wasn't all that helpful.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/refashion

So... in order to get it right; my terminology may be changing in future posts.
When I modify, recreate, or alter a garment it will be "refashion".
When I do not modify, recreate, or alter a garment; but update it with accessories and/or what not it will be "restyle".

Sorry for any confusion in my use of either of these terms in previous posts.
