Meet my delicious zucchini:
Made without screaming.
Since that is out of the way this is my latest refashion:
It was only 97 cents.
But that isn't even the best part, I had a $10 off $10 coupon, and paid 58 cents for this and a lovely green wrap sweater.
Blah, blah, blah
Here we go.
|Can you see the tree? Maybe if you squint?|
My hair usually covers half of it.
|I'm working on my terribly bad posture. I am.|
This is supposed to be a shot of the sleeves.
|So the shorts are navy, not black.|
I cut the sleeves and the mock turtle neck off. Took in both sides by 1 1/2 inches. I finished the neckline with clear elastic. I did not finish the sleeves. I reverse appliqued the stripes onto the sleeves to give it a little texture and kept going when I maybe should have stopped (surprise, surprise). I also reverse appliqued the tree onto the back which I LOVE, and the wolverine slash mark stripes down the front which I do not. Oh well, I'm sure I'll wear it a few times then add something else to it. That's usually how it goes.
In wrapping up Me-Made-March news, I have a couple more pictures.
I took everyone's advice and ditched the large belt. (This is my obi belt scrunched up for photo purposes). I also wore some stilettos to girly it up. I like it better, but still not a lot. I also checked to make sure the waist hit at the right spot, and it is exactly on my natural waistline. I did make sure that the belt edged higher, instead of lower.

I loved Me-Made-March. I wore my selfmade clothes everyday with only a couple redos. I didn't realize I had such a closet to work with!
A couple things I learned:
It's really really hard to take a picture of yourself every single day. Before I knew it it was after dark, or how about the day my kid puked on me? Not everything needs to be remembered.
I can wear a dress. All day long. (All day after the heavy cleaning and working out).
Actually, I really like wearing dresses all day. It's a lot easier to wear a loud (printed) dress with no jewelry than a T-shirt, jeans, and coordinating jewelry to try to look put together. Who knew?!
