Honorable Intentions/Reality…and a No-Sew ReFash!

Alright all…when I began this year, I started with a most noble goal of writing a post every day.

I don’t know what else to say, except that wasn’t realistic.

It just wasn’t.

“But wait! You did a refashion every day for a year four years ago! Why can’t you do it again?”, you may be wondering.

There are pllllllenty of reasons. My day job is more demanding. I have other interests (like cooking) that I want to explore. I miss reading. I travel a lot. Writing every day made it hard to actually sew anymore.

Most importantly, I felt I was losing the joy of this blog by trying to make myself post every day, and then feeling guilty when I had to take work home at night or wanted to make a good meal.

So…I’m done beating myself up with trying to post on the daily. :/

However, the blog shall go on, and I’ll post whenever I can. :)

Let’s start with this:

Fresh out of the shower with a new frock!

A No-Sew Coffee Date Top

Sometimes, all you need to make a refashion work is one simple step.

Yes, we could all expend a ton of effort for every. single. refashion. But it doesn’t always have to be that way. Sometimes the simpler solutions are the best ones.

This is one of those refashions. :) I began my morning with this dowdy dress with a fun print.

I don't know if one cup is going to be enough for me today...

A No-Sew Cozy Tunic Dress

This has been the warmest winter I have ever experienced. While some of you are undoubtedly bundling up in thick puffy coats over thick puffy vests, we’ve been wearing short sleeves and flip flops for the past month here in SC.

Until today. Last night, temps finally plummeted to winter-appropriate levels. :/ I pulled my porch plants inside and shrugged. It was time. While I hate being cold more than anything in the entire world, I LOVE wearing warm, cuddly, fleece-lined things. :)

Sooooo cooooomfy!
