Can I just apologize for my hair? Ack, I am so sick of it. It needs to be dyed and cut and I'm really leaning towards just chopping it all off. So.sick.of.it.
I'm going to admit to being a bit obessed with blouse patterns right now. There are so many awesome ones out there. Alma, Jasmine, Violet, Airelle, Roxanne? Oh so many gorgeous options, so many wonderful indie patterns. So much $$ that I just don't have. Le sigh. It's cool. Someday I'll have them but until then I've got to work with what I got. Which is a pretty awesome New Look pattern that cost me only $3.99, a Colette Pattern that was free and a tutorial on how to draft a peter pan collar. Hoping to get a wardrobe essential unlike one I've already made, I mashed them all together and here we are...
Now, obviously the meat and bones of this top is New Look 6808. Do I dare utter the letters T...N...T? My first ever!? It's an easy pattern anyway but when I omit the zip, like I did...again... it's a walk in the park. And it fits and it looks good and I think it might be exactly what I need for a basic top.
I'm wearing this with a previously unblogged Colette Ginger. I have 3 of these skirts and I really love them in theory but I kind of hate the way they look on me. I dunno. I have a rather thick waist in comparison to the rest of me and I feel like it just emphasized that fact. BUT, they are so comfy. I can't stop wearing this one in particular. Stretch denim? comfy.
|In case you're wondering...those are trashbag ghosts. ha.|
And in case anyone is wondering why the heck I'm calling this The Way It Was Shirt....it's a song that was stuck in my head the whole time I sewed this thing up. It just seemed fitting.
