What they are saying on the news is true – IT’S HOT IN THE MIDWEST. So, you can expect to see lots of this straps, light skirts, and curly hair from me. I’ve mostly been wearing shorts and tanks these days (or my swimsuit) while playing with toddlers. So for a coffee/work date with a friend, I pulled out the heels.
This skirt used to be a dress, that just didn’t get enough use in it’s original state, so I chopped it. I’ve been getting more adventurous with my scissors lately (and working on my limited sewing skills) and chopped three other garments just over the weekend. I’ll try to post some results for my scissor session in the next couple weeks. I just figure if the are old and/or cheap and I’m not wearing them anyway, why not attempt to give them new life. The worst that could happen? I end up with scrap fabric for when I eventually do master my sewing machine.
What about you? Do you fearlessly chop? Are you make impulsive (yet fairly permanent) alterations?
