When fellow Columbia blogger, Haley Sprankle created a Kylie Jenner-esque denim dress ensemble with a thrifted men’s denim shirt and challenged others to do the same, I decided to hop on board. I couldn’t care less about Kylie Jenner and her ilk if I tried, but even I had to admit this was a really cool look, and I wanted a comfy denim dress of my very own. I also haven’t sewn a frock in a while and was craving something fun and new. 🙂 I ran to the thrift store and found this large men’s shirt for $1. I was kind of hoping I could do what Haley did, and just…
Whew! What a crazy few weeks it’s been! I’m happy to report that I’m all moved out from my old apartment (yippee!) and all moved in to my new house (huzzah!)! I have some pics of my new digs further down in this post, but I know what you’re really here for…a refashion of course! 🙂
I am living in a maze of boxes, my friends. Getting my tripod and myself into a position to take a passable “before” photo wasn’t entirely dissimilar to completing an obstacle course.

However, I was excited to have a good bit of fabric to work with between the skirt, shirt, and sash. And I couldn’t help but giggle a little at the label:
Hi! 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…
