I've been absent from the blog for FOREVER, I know. When I actually have a moment, I'm either trying to fit in some sewing or fitting in a run, or fitting in some food, or fitting in some shopping, or fitting in a visit to the park because there's FINALLY a sunny day and not really fitting in any computer time. Eventually we'll get back on track, but for now, it's gonna stay pretty sporadic, sorry to disappoint you all : )I've started a fashion blog with some friends (not a public one, sorry, it's just for us) but wanted to share one of my latest refashions with you. This is the FIRST time I've even worn orange so it's kind of a big deal.
Story behind the shirt: I bought it white from Target a few years ago. I've gotten sick of all the white in my closet, so I decided to dye it. It wasn't supposed to be THIS orange- it's like a freakin' pumpkin! I was hoping it would have come out more of a burnt orange, but no such luck.
Once the dye job was over, I noticed the neckline was coming undone. It's kind of a sweater material, so it was starting to unravel! I bought orange thread to try and fix it and while it held together, it didn't look so nice. I was about to toss it when I was going through my fabric scraps and came across this long strip of fabric (I don't know my fabrics, how sad, and strange, is that?!) that's kinda silky and flowy... : ) I draped and sewed it down and was pretty dang proud of myself.
I miss you all, checking out your blogs, posting and reading comments. I love this little world we all share, where we can keep in touch and support one another. Thanks for checking in and I'll try to check in with you, too!
