Fix YouPosted: August 31, 2011
I’ve been wanting to learn how to sew for some time, so today’s prompt, “Repair and Wear“, was the perfect opportunity. I spent an afternoon with my friend Debbi; she taught me the basics of using a sewing machine; and I altered two pairs of pants. I still haven’t really got the hang of pedaling, and I can’t sew a straight seam to save my life, but it was a start!
These jeans are hand-me-down from my brother-in-law (my sister fattened him up so much after the wedding that they don’t fit him anymore :P) I still want to chop off about an inch or so from the hem, but that’s an intermediate class, and I’m just a beginner right now. Maybe another day.
Jeans: hand-me-down, altered by me
Shirt: Forever21, remixed (hey, yesterday I wore plaid with jeans too!)
Wedges: Old Navy thrifted, remixed
Post title: song by Coldplay (lame title, I know, I couldn’t think of anything.)
P/S: In other, exciting news, I actually won a giveaway! I’ve been entering giveaways since forever and never won anything, so I was super stoked to find out that I won $25 from Maggie’s Farm Vintage, courtesy of Lulu Letty. Now the question is, what should I get? I’m partial to this skirt, but these two dresses are adorable too (and I don’t mind paying the difference.) Do you guys have any suggestion?
