I did some really easy fixes this afternoon on a few whites I had sitting in my sewing inbox. It's not always the most exciting thing to make these kinds of fixes, but when needing to build up on basics, its a necessary task.
First up is a white tank top whose straps are just far too long and when needing to wear this under something with a low neckline, it doesn't help that this works its way down to be too low as well. :-/
So, I simply cut the straps in the back, removed about 2 inches, then folded them under and sewed them back in place.
Much better :)
Next up is this white top I thrifted last month for $2.50. Very white, not a spot on it, and super soft! Just a little big.
So, I turned it inside out, laid a top on it that fit well, and then pinned around where I'd need to take it in. I ran each side through my machine and trimmed off the excess.
And now I've got a nice fitted white t-shirt.
Last in my group of whites are these boot cuffs that I refashioned from a thrifted cardigan. They are very simple but pretty and I just wanted to add a little something.
So, I rummaged through my stash of thrifted buttons and came across the ones I wanted. I didn't want to create contrast, but just add a subtle detail and the tone on tone does this. Now they are ready to wear!
On another note, I'm working on a tutorial for some pretty spring scarves! I received a message on my Etsy shop asking if I'd posted on how I made the scarf I'm wearing in this pic...
which is my main blog picture (also on my shop page). I hadn't created a tutorial on that scarf as it was something I did 3 years ago, but upon responding to the message I found that she'd been looking to see if I had scarves like that one for sale. Well, why not make some more and create a tutorial for it for any that would simply want to make one themselves? So, keep an eye out for that this weekend!
Hope you are all well,
