I love finding costumes or wedding dresses, things that are really meant to be worn for one purpose, and giving them a 180.
It’s fun to think outside the box a little, so when I found this glorious top…
…I just HAD to have it. Sheer sleeves, blue trim, FRINGE, and a cool coin chain. How does one pass over that item??
I was super excited to craft this into something that I’d wear everyday.
Seriously – I might be taking the top off in the photo below, but what I’m going to be making could turn into something I wear daily.
Wanna see what I’m thinking??
You guys, I moved!! I finally got into my new place Sorry for the downtime, but my wifi is all set and now I’m getting ready to get back into the swing of things.
Figured I’d share some of my moving shots from boxing and labeling my DIY goodies…
…to saying goodbye to my little panic room door that when opened…
…hid my wee sewing studio. I’m looking forward to my new space complete with a proper area to sew and space for all of my supplies!
As I was sorting through things to keep and donate, I found something amazing from years ago. The gift certificate to Jennifer Convertibles that I won on The Price is Right!!!!!
Can’t wait to see what this is going to get me there…many, many, many years later. (I will obviously have to document this moment.)
After days of taping boxes, wrapping glass in bubble wrap, and taking down all of my fun Etsy art, I finally had my old apartment empty. It was time to say goodbye and step into my new home that I can’t wait to fill with more memories.
When moving into a new place, one always rolls their sleeves and wears their Game of Thrones tee shirt given to them by their Reddit Secret Santa.
That’s just how one rolls.
I’m spending the next few days unpacking but will be back in sewing mode this weekend. Fun remakes to come next week!! Thanks for all your patience and lovely emails! So happy to be starting this next chapter of my life in a brand new space! xo
I love it when this happens.
Yeah, I’m talking about when that dress just won’t fit. In this case, I couldn’t get one of my arms into the sleeve nor button up the top portion of the dress.
This just wasn’t going to work…
Time to make this something wearable!
Hi everyone! I’ve been a bit offline the past week because I’m moving (yay!! still in LA, but to a space where I’ll have an actual studio to work in!!) and have been in crazy boxing up mode. Alas, I’m back and have some really fun remakes around the corner.
This is just one you get to look forward to…
And, here’s another…
Also, a winner will get announced later today from the pre-holiday goodie giveaway (someone is getting a chic, new Rafe purse!!) and I see a bunch more giveaways coming up while I take down the arduous task of boxing up my apartment!
