Boy Please!

11.07.2013

I am on a ball, the Lord is my strength, yall.  Been wanting some jeans with the boyfriend look, not about to pay for them in store. So I made some out of a pair of men jeans from the thrift store.  I just took in the legs and bam! I haven't distressed them or anything yet. I may in the future. But for right now I'm a happy camper.

Hello lovely people! Here is one of the sewing projects the I spoke about in one of my previous post. I found this skirt at the thrift store for $5 bucks. I really liked the flower detail and it gave me the idea to combine it with some left over fabric from a sewing mishap. 

$5 bucks score!!


I love the flower detail

I took the hem out to give it some length
Used the fabric left over from this disaster

I still had some fabric left over from the above sewing mishap and I love the fabric and don't want it to go to waste. So I combined the fabric with the thrifted skirt and ...

Not to bad.  I had to turn the print sideways to get it to work, otherwise it would have been to short around.  I was determined not to waste this material.
Back split
Over all I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Til next time.
