What I Wore Sunday: Week 19

Before I show you what I wore Sunday, can I show you what I wore Saturday?  I guess I can, since no one is stopping me!!

A group of us started off dressed like this:


(we DIYed our awesome shirts, and if you know me in real life, you’ll know why our team name, The Orange Villains, is so funny…)

…and ended up looking like this:


Yep.  We ran in The Dirty Dash.  It was loads of dirty fun.  We’ll definitely do that again!  Too bad Ash and her Hubby bailed on us.  They would have loved it.  Oh well.  There’s always next time!  :)

…and I still have mud under my toenails that I can’t get out.  Ewww…

Okay.  Moving on…frame to match teal and white

…52 weeks of shaking up the wardrobe…

The Rules:

  1. Wear a different outfit every Sunday.

  2. Incorporate at least one article of clothing or accessory that was either refashioned, sewn myself, or handmade.

  3. Outfits can be worn more than once; just not the same way.

  4. Think outside the box and be creative

This is what I wore Sunday:

week 19

This is my refashioned ruffle shirt worn with last year’s Easter skirt.  Last year I was ambitious for Easter.  I sewed this skirt for myself and SIX neckties for my favorite little loves.  Well, one of them is big, but you get the idea.


Okay.  So that’s not a great picture, but it is really hard to get everyone to smile for the  camera.  Also, ignore my chubbiness.  I was nursing.  Sadly, I am not one of those people who looses weight and is super skinny while I am nursing.  Ash is, and I kind of hate her for it.  Joking!  :)

Last week’s party was a lot of fun.  There were so many great entries.  I am sorry I wasn’t able to comment on all of them.  It’s the first week of Summer vacation, and we’re still trying to figure out our new routine.  I didn’t spend much time online this week.  I hope you’ll forgive me.

We had three entries tie for the most viewed links.  They are:


These fabulous handmade Zumba Pants from Threading My Way.  So cute.  I love the blue stitching over the black fabric.  Apparently, this gave Pam some grief, but I think they look wonderful.

We also had this super adorable bridesmaid dress from Yellowcloth:


Jacinda found an adorable vintage dress pattern on Etsy, practiced on some muslin, but didn’t love the way it fit her.  So, she tweaked it to her liking and the end result is perfect!  I can’t wait to see what the actual bridesmaid dress looks like.

Our last entry in the most viewed tie was this fabulous tutorial on how to make a smocked top from Designs By Studio C.


This top is super cute and super easy to make.  This tutorial is really easy to follow and has lots of pictures.  I love the end result, too.  So cute!

Also, I have to throw these next two in the mix.  Their ideas are so incredibly clever!  Be sure to check them out.

Julie from Love It Sew Much has this fabulous dress to tunic top refashion.  She shows off several different ways to wear the tunic.

Marija from Tousled Day turned a wooden place mat into a clutch.  A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E.
