What I Wore Sunday: Week 27

Hey there!  Guess who won the giveaway?!

I now follow you both on Pinterest... I am hopelessly addicted:)
Congratulations, Carlee!  Email me your shipping address, and I’ll get this cute apron to you ASAP!
Thanks to all of you for entering!  That was fun.  We should do it again sometime!  :)
Before I show y’all what I wore on Sunday, I’ve got to show you something I just made.  I’m super excited about it, and I love how it turned out:
wedding veil
wedding veil 2
wedding veil 3
So, last Saturday, I went wedding dress shopping with a dear friend of mine.  I could.not.believe. how expensive the veils were!  I think the cheapest one we found was $85.00.  YIKES!
I looked at that and thought, “I could make that.  Easy.”
She let me try, and this is what I came up with.  I just used satin stitch rolled hem on my serger for the edges of the veil.  The top is ribbon rosettes with a small pearl in the center.  That is sewn to the veil, which is sewn to two white combs.  That’s it.
Guess how much this veil cost?!
SIX DOLLARS!!!  Woot! 
Maybe I shouldn’t brag about that, but I was super excited about it!  
Okay.  Onto WIWS…

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.
Here’s what I wore:
week 27
Bleh.  I hate seeing pictures of myself.  Anyway, that is the skirt I made for Easter, with my super cute shoes from Amazon, and a cheapola shirt from Maurices’.  The detail on the shirt was fun.  Well worth the four dollars I spent on the shirt! 
…and that is what I wore Sunday!  :)
