recent diys

it's a little funny to think this started as a craft/sewing blog. i had a bunch of features on cut out and keep so i made accoudrements.. 

thought i'd go back to its roots with a little diy-roundup of what i've made more recently.

bleached sleeve dress; lame-esque elastic skirt; pleated floral skirt w/exposed zipper; painted-stripe suedeish booties.

the denim dress and the shoes are thrifted (both from rumours, i think.) i loved the shoes ($5) but they seemed plain so i added a racing stripe on the exterior side of each one. tape & fabric paint.

that's all, folks!

p.s. it's so horribly miserable out. the midwest is all 'it's sooo hot!' but here in virginia we've got 100*+ temperatures. daily. no offense to any midwesterners. that's also why the silver skirt seems so goddamn shiny. it's not that shiny; it's like a matte gunmetal.


  1. I really like the lame (esque) skirt.. and the shoeees! reeeed love them!
