Teal Vest

If it’s not a flood, tornadoes, or a freakin’ “polar vortex” blizzard… it’s something else. Seriously, this has been the most jacked up year for weather I’ve ever known in my life. Indiana is notorious for its bipolar seasonal “change” but this past year has been exceptionally odd… I’m over it.

I’ve been trapped in my house the last 3 days. It could be worse, so I shouldn’t complain….

Anyhoo, I’ve wanted to share several of my new creations. They look spectacular, especially taken with my NEW camera πŸ™‚ I can’t tell you how happy I am about this new camera. It’s amazing! Unfortunately, I don’t have all my tools yet (cord, etc.) to share those pictures. So, in the meantime, I’ll have to share a couple refashions I did with my sucky camera :/

Image
You’ve taken your last awful picture, Mr. Olympus! Oh, yes you have.

Anything that hides my gargantuous hips, I’m all about πŸ™‚ So, I decided to keep the length and make this a super long vesty thingy. I accomplished that by cutting out the shoulder pads and removing the sleeves.

Image
You pin it, and cut off the excess.

This material was fray-tastic! I had to use my serger to secure the seams… straight stitch just doesn’t cut it sometimes. Then, I just took care of that raw edge leftover from my missing sleeves and called it a day.

Image
Remarkably similar yet… different.

I also took off those hideous buttons in the front.

I did actually hem the bottom of the vest up a few inches. I have no pictures of that or any other “after” pics of me wearing this vest, but styled differently because, if I may reiterate, my previous camera sucked πŸ™‚ Those were magically lost in translation somehow… oh well. That’s life.

I really hope I can share other creations with you soon. The pics will be so gloriously clear you’ll think you’re looking at a different blog! πŸ™‚
