Made It Myself Monday: the p.j. top modified



I fed through a ribbon on the front and another on the back and I tied it on the sides. It wasn't really flattering but I recalled how the vintage dresses often have a smooth center front.. so I stitched in two darts 4 inches long and centered 6 inches apart in the front of the blouse that went through the casing, catching the ribbon. This means the front stays smooth while the ribbons gather it at the back and sides. A bit less poofy where I don't really want to look poofy and easy peasy.




We are at the river right by my little cabin.. Yesterday was the most beautiful day ever!




And I bet you can tell but I finally got my photographer back.

Thanks, Jacob!
xxooo


oh yeah, and I got finally got a haircut!

Such great photos--it looks like a fantastic location with such great light.

The top is adorable, as are the trousers--love the length and are those buttons along the sides?

Keri and Maddie:

click on the pics.. They get obnoxiously large... Was there a specific detail you were curious about ?
Ties or darts or the elastic neckline? I will post what ever you desire!

You know, I don't usually think of grown-ups (are we those yet?) as cute....but...I think you are one of the cutest grown-ups I know!! I really mean that as a compliment!

I love the haircut and the top both.

I just tried to post this a second ago and it seemed not to work. If it posts twice- I'm so sorry! Blogger hates me today.

The top is great and the I can't get enough of the photos. I'm also pretty jealous of that parasol and your close proximity to nature.

Fantastic and really great photos. That looks like it was a fun photoshoot. How come I can't get anybody to agree to be my model?
