a sew sew weekend.



dress: f21 (from like 1999); sandals: h&m; tee: old navy; skirt: handmade

so friday i had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted. so my weekend was spent recovering and resting at home... and since i was stuck at home in between feeling groggy i ended up doing some random sewing. first i hemmed up an old dress that has been in my closet for almost 10 years.. and now it's at a much more flattering length (i think i should pair it with some ivory heels)... and then i decided to make a skirt out of some old fabric i had.

i'm so hungry.. jello is just not so filling.

  1. You are a sweetheart! Thank you on both account (commenting my contest/vote) and my Collage!*

    I'm sorry to hear about your wisdom teeth. In dire times like these, I love smoothies and Odwalla protein shakes. ;) Feel better, you look lovely. xx

    I love that dog of yours. Aw. <3

  5. you had a busy weekend. they all look great. very savvy. sometimes it is a wonder what happens to an old piece when it's redone properly. too bad i can't sew.

  7. I will have to agree with you on the length. it looks much better shorter!
    That skirt is really cute.

    btw.. how did you survive? I had to have a huge ice pack around my face all day for days.. looking just like Kenny out of South Park. :)

  12. I agree, the dress is so much easier to wear after the transformation. And your DIY skirt is in the cutest pattern.

  13. Glad to hear you recovered from the wisdom teeth pull! I had that done years ago and it wasn't fun.

    This post is reminding me of all the items hanging in my closet that need hemming ;) !
