To kick off May I’d like to introduce you to April’s sewing project- this skirt. I didn’t use a pattern, just measured a skirt I liked and added some length for seam allowances. It’s pretty rough- no, you can’t get a peek at the inside, but it’s totally functional and will probably get a lot of wear this summer. It’s made from vintage fabric, trim, and zipper- all stuff I had on hand in my craft room. I’m not one to usually just sit down and start sewing without a pattern, but it worked out. There were definitely parts that would’ve been easier with some sort of guidance, but it was good for me to get outside my sewing comfort zone and just go for it.

I thrifted these Aldo jelly sandals a couple weeks ago for $1. Every time I wear them I get “I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly” stuck in my head, which is weird because I hadn’t even heard that song until a week ago. What’s even funnier is that Brian was the one to introduce me to this Destiny’s Child jam, by pretending the cat was singing and dancing to it. I know- I must’ve been living under a rock, but really the most exposure I’ve had to top 40 music since the ’90s has been a shopping trip at Forever 21 or more recently at Zumba. :)diy, outfits and tagged crafting, DIY, lucky, outfits, t-store scores, vintage. ← Flower Power so much vitamin c… →
