DIY Hi Low t shirt refashion

Last night I did a little diy on a bland boring t shirt.

I cut the back of the shirt up at the side seams and across at the bottom of the arm pit.

I then took this fabulous leopard print material and cut a rectangle that was a little longer than the front.

Pinned it and sewed it across the upper back from arm pit to arm pit.
Then down on both side seams.

I removed the front pocket and cut out a new one out of the leopard print and resewed that in the same place that old one was.

I then cut the new leopard back into a round hem and sewed a small hem.

After trying the shirt on I decided that I needed to redo the sleeves. So I sewed a larger stitch down the sleeves from the shoulder seam and Ruched it up and then stitched it down with a regular stitch.

Can’t wait to wear it tonight at comedy!

Tut Tut, it looks like rain!

Hello!

I hope your weather is as nice as mine is today! Its all sunshiney, although we are to expect rain later this afternoon.
I’m wearing the rain boots again, just to keep my feet dry, and they are kinda cute!
I’m also wearing my new DIY graphic sweater and new DIY skirt(this is the reversible one.)
The graphic turned out decent, definitely learned some do’s and don’t’s while attempting this, but I like it. Didn’t cost me much at all, and I for sure will be giving it a second try.

March comes in like a Lion.

Hello lovelies!

Hope your Monday is going well. Mines very busy, so I’m typing this up on my lunch! I spent the morning shoveling well over 5 inches of snow, so no outfit post, but I will share with you a few things!

First off, I won this AWESOME Rebecca Minkoff Purse last night! I reposted and tagged a photo on Instagram last week and lo and behold, I won! Can’t wait for this beauty to arrive in the mail!

My Sunday Funday was filled with DIYs since the weather looked like this

I made fresh banana bread( although my dang oven is very annoying and it got a little browner than I wanted, baking is NOT my forte) it was still delish once you cut off the darker parts.

I also picked up jersey knit to make some pencil skirts for work. I got my material for under $30 and got three skirts with leftovers to make a few turbands and maybe a addition to a shirt.

Then I bought a sweater and started this little graphic saying shirt

And last but not least, I updated my chalkboard for March! I love having a chalkboard in my kitchen to draw on. Although my talent is nowhere near my friends, it’s a learning process

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and a smooth Monday, keep your eyes open for the styling of my new skirts and of my new purse when I get it!!
