Wardrobe Update: Upcycled Skirt

Hey guys!

I’ve been meaning to work on this project / post for awhile. I have so many items of clothing that I want to alter and it’s just been piling up in my apartment. Well, one down, several more to go! Keep reading to see my first of many fixer-uppers!

I adore this Free People dress, but after several washes, the fabric was wearing thin and it ripped on the front seam šŸ˜¦

No worries though, because after chopping off the top and adding an elastic waistband, I’ve got a new skirt to wear!

Stay tuned, I have lots of upcylcing to do!

Until next time! xoxo

DIY T-shirts

This weekend, my friends and I flew to Akron, OH to surprise Justin for his birthday. We all took the same flight leaving NY, but Dave convinced the airline to let us board first. When we landed in Ankron, we ran up to Justin and yelled, “SURPRISE!” He was pretty confused.

Anyway, for the big reveal, we decided to make iron on custom tees. Here are a couple photos – they are so easy to make. For Natalie, I just cut the bottom into strips. Since I made Lauren’s somewhat of a crop top, I used the excess fabric to make braids and cut out theĀ regular crew neck and sleevesĀ to create a braided neck. I think they turned out pretty well!

I definitely can’t take credit for this cake, but look how amazing it is!!! The closest I came to this was making a pinata cake.Ā 

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far! Stay cool.
