cheery


after really hating the thought of wearing
another black top to work tonight...
i decided at 3 pm that i would whip up
something from the "bright" material i had left
from the bag i had made...
now as a might have mentioned i hate
making myself clothes as they always look
handmade (not in a good way)...
and i did nearly give up with this
number as a tried it on and it looked
all smock toppy...
but back to the machine i when and
added a band around the bust
and threaded through another tie
and yeah!!!
it worked...
i had enough time to make a quick headband
and the guys thought it look very "cheery"
i think that was a complement...
i could get the hang of this clothes making thing yet...

I love it. You look like a teenager from the 70's with the washed out polaroid and funky outfit. I wish I could whip up a new outfit in an afternoon.

That is gorgeous! I tried to make myself a top about a year ago and it was an absolute disaster... Haven't tried again since.
