Hi everyone, I’m still here I promise. I know it’s been awhile since I have written anything. In fact someone asked me “How come you aren’t writing anymore?” I am I promise, I am just trying to figure out how to keep this going with my new busy schedule. I just started my internship with a school district and it has me swamped. I have never had a job where time goes by so fast, I’m like “crap it’s time to go home already, how did that happen?” So bear with me if my refashions are few and far between, and super simple for awhile. I’m not working on Fridays, so I am going to try and make that my writing/sewing/do everything else I gotta do day. Alright on to the refashion!
I loved the color of this tunic and the sequins sewn into it when I saw it in the thrift store. I also loved how sheer it was, since we are in a huge heat wave right now over here in California. I immediately thought I would turn it into one of those kimono cover up things, which is a little modern for me, but what the hey you gotta mix things up every once in awhile. I thought this would be perfect to wear to the coast for my friend’s bachelorette weekend. Unfortunately, the week before I left was once again crazy and I had no time to refashion it, so I literally cut it right before I was about to leave.
I cut the sequins out down the middle, to be able to make it even on both sides, this also gives me fabric to turn over to create an actual seam when I get the chance to sew it. Since I didn’t have time, I ran some fray check down the raw edges to keep them from fraying, threw it on over a tank and some cut off jean shorts that I made and then jumped in the car for the two hour drive to the coast. Of course the cover up came off in the car and I thought, “When I hit that cool beachy air this will be perfect.” But unbeknownst to me, it was hotter than balls at the coast. So I pretty much only wore this cover up for pictures, which is ok cause it needed a little more love to make it more presentable in public. So I guess you could consider this a refashion fail, but whatever, I’d still rock it.
So I have been watching a lot of project pan and empties video’s on youtube and wanted to garner your guy’s opinion on me writing about one of these. So if you are like me and watching people use things up or organizing things is supper satisfying to you let me know. Or if you’re like “Steph we don’t give a flying F, on if you use up a blush or not.” Let me know too. Or if you are like I have no idea what the hell you are even talking about, leave me a comment down below. Alright guys till next time!
