So, I made couple things recently. Thought I'd show you all. I've been a bit busier since work started again. But I have had some time for refashioning. It's just that by the time I'm done refashioning, I don't quite have time to blog. So, I'll go ahead and give you two at once.
The first is this darling top I found at an estate sale.
It belonged to an old lady. I'm sure you're not surprised.
First things first; remove the sleeves. It has been about a million degrees outside so sleeves just aren't happening right now.
After that I just hemmed the arm holes and took in the sides. It became a super-cute summer top.
Next, I'll present this skirt:
I got this one at a thrift store for $1.25. The color caught my eye. And I think the print is really cool too.
I didn't have to do too much with this one. I took in the waist and took a few inches off the bottom. The hemming was a little tricky because it's pleated but I think the whole project took me less than an hour.
I love, love, love this skirt! It's so comfortable and fun. I've worn it three times in the last week. I really feel like these pictures don't show quite how cute the skirt is. You'll just have to stop me on the street when I'm wearing it :)
