A lot of you have been wondering what I’ve been up to and where I’ve been. First off, I apologize for making some of you worry.
I’ve been adulting, my friends. I have been doing some seriously hardcore adulting lately. :)
You see, I’m in the process of buying my first house! I’ve been super busy with house hunting, and really haven’t had time for much else. I can’t say much, as nothing is final yet, but I hope to have some really exciting news for you all very very soon. :)
In the meantime, I still need to de-stress, and nothing helps me relax and unwind quite like a fun refashion.
However, my sewing room was a mess! You can read more about how I dealt with it right here.
Now…back to the refashioning!
Ah! I so love a comfy muumuu. However, even a casual evening with friends should never be quite that casual.
I grabbed my seam ripper and took it to those sleeves.
This was taking forever, as they were triple-stitched in. As I was in a hurry, I only unpicked the tops of the sleeves, and then cut out the rest. I serged the raw edges and pinned everything under.
I stitched the armholes down, then took in the sides.
After the sides were taken in, I tried my new frock on and quickly realized how rusty I’ve gotten at refashioning. This was not going to work. I looked about 7 months pregnant. :/
But I wasn’t about to give up. I hacked off the bottom…
Then, I gave it a new hem.
And now I have a fun 70’s-style peasant top!
My fellas and I enjoyed a couple of local brews and tasty noms at The Twisted Spur.
So, I’m sorry I’ve been so woefully absent, but I promise to not be such of a stranger now.
I will also accept offers of physical labor for those of you who’d like to help me move next month.
Just kidding. That could get weird. ;)
