On the cutting table

The image shown is from the j.crew fall catalog cover. When I visit the website I do not see this skirt still offered, it may be sold out. I am making this look for less using this pattern.
This will be my first time using a hot pattern.
I'm off to sew.

And sew it goes...

The nights here are cooler. There is a bite to the air in the mornings. I'm looking forward to fall, it's just; summer where did you go?
Happy belated first day of Autumn.

The look for less...

The first image is the bethesda jersey tee from anthropologie.

Recently I made a pledge to refashion, renovate, and recycle preloved clothing.

The second image is my look for less. Much less.
My sister-in-law was giving the t-shirts away. They were brand new. The only issue was the text on the front which read:
If My Hose Is Kinked All I'm Going To Do Is Dribble.
So scissors in hand, I cut the text away. Look what I found.
two t-shirts large .00
vintage ribbon .35
cost .35

In the Revival Anthropologie catalog this tee sells for $48.oo plus tax. Woo-hoo. I'm having fun.

For the love of good design...

Dreaming of fall, the color orange, braided hair, and beautiful design that never goes out of style. Orla I heart you.
I cannot find the link to the image of the braided hair. If this is your image please let me know and I will link back to you.
