Day 15: DIY Dyed T-Shirt to Racerback Tank

Day 16: Sparkle and Flow Top
Day 14: A Royal Jacket/Cape

Remember when I dyed that white skirt coral on Day 10?  Well…that skirt wasn’t alone!  I hated the idea of using a whole packet of dye on just one lil skirt, so I threw this T-shirt in as well:

Pity the Pitted-Out Pink T 🙁

You’re looking at a sadly pit-stained JCrew Tissue Tee.  I would’ve just turned it into a bag with those other tees from Day 11, but I didn’t think it would hold up very well, being all tissuey and all.

I was hoping the dye would cover those pits, and I’d just be able to wear the T as-is.  Sadly, that didn’t quite work out.  :/

The shirt that looks sweaty, so you don't have to! 🙂

As I didn’t feel like walking around looking as though I was constantly sweating (because I do that enough already, thank ya!), I got out the scissors and began to chop…and chop…and chop.

This is what I came up with:

Le Front
Day 15: DIY Dyed T-Shirt to Racerback Tank 5
Le Back!

I used a skinny scrap of the cut-offs to gather my tank in the back.

It ain’t fancy, but I really do like it.  My tank was perfect for a casual evening in.  I could also see me wearing this over my bikini at the beach or at the gym.  🙂

I’ve been uber-inspired by foodie blogs lately!  I love to cook, and have recently discovered this blog written by this lady in Spain who spends her time making her own ginger beer (which I’m gonna try this weekend), roasted goat legs, and all sorts of other fabulous yummy stuff.  She left a comment on my blog, and I’ve been following her ever since.  🙂 I imagine her to be like the Barefoot Contessa, with a rich husband, and a life spent making wonderful things/ entertaining….only possibly cooler because she’s in flippin’ Spain (where I dream of going someday)!  *Sigh*

I decided to spend some time in my kitchen making some tasty Eggplant Parmesan for me and the fella.  T’was delish!

One of my faves!

The Pinot Grigio wasn’t so bad, either.  😉

    Talented at sewing and cooking – most impressive! And thanks for the mention, very kind. Am chuckling away at your vision of me – the only thing Ina and I have in common is perhaps our body shape 🙁 My Big Man is a humble installer of electric pylons in the Spanish Campo – so although he´s big of belly and heart, his bank account is smaller! Think what you´re doing here is great and if I remember corectly you´re getting married soon and will making your own wedding dress? Am looking forward to reading about that. Take care 🙂

      My fella and I are getting married on May 12, 2012, and yep…I’m making my own dress. I’m really excited about it! 🙂
