Refashion: Polka Dot Shirt


I’m starting to feel better about my sewing with a few successful projects under my belt these days.

Laura sent me this awesome navy polka dot top that needed a slight fit adjustment. It’s made of some sort of polyester knit fabric so it was a little bit slippery, but not as mischievous as the last one.

I didn’t have to take in the shoulders, it just needed shorter sleeves and a narrower bodice. I took it in by about 2 inches on each side, and cut off about 3 inches of sleeve. It’s a fantastic staple shirt that will go well with cardigans this winter, or with flowy skirts this summer.

I love the little keyhole in the back.

I’m pretty excited to party in my new shirt, can you tell?

I love wearing light-weight skirts during the summer. Truth be told, I don’t currently own a single pair of shorts. I definitely don’t mind it being that way. This outfit was really easy. No make up, just lipstick and glasses.

Fish Scale Sequins


I found this top at a clothing swap months ago & wore it for the first time today. I like how it looks, but not how it sounds. It makes a plasticky rustling noise as I move.
