Come check out my review and giveaway for an awesome new kids book!
I went to TJ Maxx the other day. I don't typically go shopping for myself, but I had $25 that I had just gotten from my in-laws for Mother's Day and it was burning a hole in my pocket. Oh, and I had just sold a sling too, so I decided to splurge a little.
So, off to TJ Maxx I went and found a few shirts that I thought were cute. Then I found some Born Sandals for only $40!!! SQUEE! Running short on time (darn that school pick up) I hurried and tried on the shirts. I settled on one that I thought would look cute with jeans and took off like a crazy woman to get Seth from school.
I got home and remembered some fabric I had bought to make myself a dress. Excited that the stars had aligned and I would actually have something that MATCHED, a ran downstairs with my new shirt in hand and put it by the fabric, oh my gosh it was meant to be.
I whipped up a slightly modified gathered skirt from this pattern. It took all of about 30 minutes and I am thrilled with the results. At Church, my friends said they would never guess it was homemade, except that it was mine and that typically means that I made it.
But that's okay because I can be as silly as I want to when I am wearing the most comfortable outfit that I now own and when it is so super cute!
