SCHOOL'S IN! ---------------->Jean Skirt

THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 2012




found online


Ok so my kids started up a few weeks ago, technically the 9th.
I've been consumed with consistant bed times (mine has been really poor), school schedule and minor homework they've been getting so far.
BUT tonight IS their BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT!

Here's a shot of their 1st day.


FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!

My daughter (N.B.) is in 1st grade, 6.5yrs and has NOT lost any teeth yet.
She REALLY wants to lose some teeth. lol
 My son (M.L.) is in 4th, turned 9 in June and is growing a new tooth
Our babies are getting so big :)


Ok, before you tune me out because I've started with my kids in this post,
 (PROUD MOMMA)
I do have a redo I worked on and wore last Sunday.

The skirt portion was too small for me.

TL: I removed the elastic and pulled a longer piece from my stash.
TR: Longer elastic pinned to pleats.
 BL: Elastic sewed to sides of front panel 1st.
BR: Elastic sewn to jean skirt.

 I forgot to take pics but I also tapered the sides of the skirt, taking in a bit more by the knees.

AFTER:
Worn with a green shirt (thrifted 1.00), shirt necklace (made by me HERE),
wood necklace  (thrifted 1.00), sandals (old,thrifted)


JEAN SKIRT REDO

SIDE
The pleats puffed up awkwardly, creating a "fuller" look so I sewed them down about 3inches. It slimmed the silhouette, ok me lol
