the crisp air
the apple crisp ;]
I'm pretty excited for Fall fashion. I love layering, and with this abnormally hot Maine summer (I know! It's not hot compared to a lot of places, but seriously! It's Maine for crying out loud!) layering has been scarce. I miss my boots. And my cardigans. And my scarves. Anyway, Fall will be here before we know it, and I received more hand-me-downs from my little brother today.
After a frustrating day with a 2.75 year old and then a frustrating start with sewing machine tension, I finally came up with a happy refashion. I present to you, my new fall shirt dress/tunic!
Before:xxl men's button down
After: super cute plaid tunic!
Tunic: refashion Belt: hubs closet Cowl & Boot socks: made by me Boots: Target (2011) Leggings: F21
One thing I super duper love about this refashion (and my previous ones) is that it's not maternity exclusive. You can totally wear it and rock it while not pregnant. I can wear this tunic minus the belt for a looser, more comfy fit, but I do love the way belts give me some shape and highlight my belly. I kind of followed this tutorial.
PS are you getting tired of my 70s bathroom mirror cell phone pics with bad lighting yet? I have this thing for sewing at night and/or when no one is around to take a decent photo.
