Happy Friday, everyone! Since it’s the end of the week for most people, today’s outfit is somewhat dressed down. It’s also my first “refashion” of the month. I took an old navy tank top that basically had been sitting in my dresser since the day I bought it, and gave it new life. Following a tutorial by Ali Foster – great sewing patterns by this girl, by the way – I used some striped quilting cotton to create a nautical-esque collar. While I’m happy with the outcome and think it adds punch to an otherwise boring top, I’d be interesting in trying this again, and instead of pleating the collar, I’d gather it around the neckline. Food for thought!
Tank top – Joe Fresh/Me Made! (refashion)
Gaucho pants – on their way to being “vintage”! They’ve been in my closet for 12 years and I have no idea where they’re from.
Cardi – Nygaard – this might be a refashion later on in the month as I feel it’s a little stretched out.
Earrings: Me Made!
Shoes – Mossimo
Hours worn: 13 hours
Places visited: Work
Main activities: Sitting at a computer (again! – I’m dying to either be outside in the sun or at home in front of the ol’ machine!)
Number of times I have worn this top: First time.
Wear again? It needs a few tweaks, but I think I’ll wear it again. It’d look cute with white shorts.
