friday

Madewell blouse, Forever21 shorts, Converse

Spring has been very kind to San Diego this week with 80 degree weather. I had to keep strong and make myself go to math class instead of jumping in my car and driving to the beach.

Recycling/sharing some of my instagram photos here! You can follow me here.

Just wanted to let you all know that my looks are now on Cream Style, a new app for the iPhone/iPad where you can shop looks. Kind of an all in one shopping/inspiration app. You can check that out here!

Dress c/o chicwish, Target heels, Gap sweater (mens)

Pleats=happiness. At least for me. Can't go wrong with a grey colored dress either.

sewing adventures: floral slip dress

Self sewn dress (BurdaStyle pattern), Steve Madden boots

I told myself that I would try and sew a couple projects during spring break, so here is the first project! Floral slip dresses are kind of everywhere and I couldn't resist making one when I found this fabric. This BurdaStyle pattern is pretty simple and sews up very quickly. The only modification that I made was the length. If you are looking for a dress to mix up your spring wardrobe I recommend it! Happy sewing~

diy faux leather top

DIY shirt, Honey Punch Shorts, Zara heels

I had extra faux leather left over from the bucket bag that I made so I figured I'd give a leather shirt a try. This project is really easy because there isn't much to it. It's basically just two large squares!

You will need:
  1. Faux leather
  2. Sewing machine with leather needles
  3. Scissors

You can trace an over-sized shirt that you have or you can just copy the shape that I have going here. You can see that it is very minimal, just two pieces of faux leather cut the same but the neck line is further down in the front. Also make the top slanted instead of straight across.

Sew with right sides together. Don't forget to leave an opening for the arms! I made my pretty large because this fabric doesn't stretch, so you need room to take it on and off. Also, if you didn't make the neck opening wide enough you can cut a small opening in the back so your head can fit through.

It's faux leather, so no need to hem! Happy sewing~
