Today was a rough one, friends. :/ My evening of too much wine caught up with me this morning…severely. As a grown-up whose college days are far in the past, this hasn’t happened in years, and it’s quite embarrassing. :/ I spent most of the day bemoaning my hungover state on the couch. My sweet fella brought me gatorade and bread bowl soup while quoting John Gielgud’s lines from Arthur. (I’ve taken the liberty of anticipating your condition. I have brought you orange juice, coffee, and aspirins. Or do you need to throw up?)
Eventually, I was able to rally for the SC Gamecocks football game! Don’t let that exclamation point fool you; I couldn’t care less about football, but I love having a refashion that is subtly amusing. 😉
Today’s piece began as a soccer (or depending where you’re from, football) jersey that I scored for $1.
My interest in soccer isn’t particularly deep. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for watching handsome European men run around being agile and passionate. But I tend to base who I’m rooting for on whose uniforms I like best. 😉
I lopped off the top and hemmed the raw edge under. Then, I cut off part of the sleeves, sewed them closed, and tucked them in to make pockets. 🙂
Now I have a football skirt to wear for game days! 😉
Here’s a couple of close-ups to give you a better idea of what I’ve done.
I wore my skirt to meet up with a few friends, two are which are sadly moving to Philly (good for Philly, bad for me). 🙁
Cheers (responsibly)! 🙂
