What I Wore Sunday: Week 35

Guess what Jingus, Crocky, and The Hubsters are doing today?

They’re flying in a biplane to pass off a Boy Scout Merit Badge.  I’m trying not to think about it, and I’m praying they make it back safely.  Goodness.  It makes me nervous.  Not them, though.  They were all just so excited to go!

Boys.  pssshhht…  ;)

…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 36

I am wearing my ruffle tank (made from a nightgown), my lettuce edge cardigan (tutorial coming soon), and my pencil skirt from Wal-Mart.  I love that skirt!  :)

Alrighty.  Let’s have a feature post, shall we?

Oh do, lets!

This feature post will be from the last three link parties we’ve had.  Thanks a bunch to everyone who linked up.  You all have such fantastic ideas.  Thanks for the inspiration!

First up is this sweet little Rapunzel dress from Alison of Heavenly Handmades.


I just love all the details she put into the dress.  She has a fabulous tutorial for the dress--just in time for Halloween!

Mira from Sewing The Littleheart Collection shows us how to do pin-tucks, pleats, and smocking all in the same outfit.

Seriously.  How cute is that outfit?  I love everything about it.  Thanks for the fabulous tutorial, Mira!  :)

Next up is this cute little Tea Roses Dress from Blooms and Bugs.


Aren’t those colors just so yummy?  It is just perfect for a sweet little baby!  Love it!

Gate No.4 shows us how to make a sleeveless dress modest.  Let’s face it.  Not all of us want to (or even should) show off all that skin. 


I just love how she added sleeves but didn’t take away from the beauty of the dress.  The next time I need to add sleeves to a formal, I am going to do it this way.  The last one I added sleeves to was very similar to the Garden Wedding Flower Girl Dress I made.  Gate No.4’s method covers more of the back.  I love that. 

Finally, be sure to check out these fun infinity scarves--just in time for fall. 


This one is from Julie of Love It Sew Much.  I just love that fabric. 


How about this checkered one from Gingerly Made?  Isn’t that fun?  I love both of these scarves and can’t wait to make a few of my own.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated!  Well, keep those sewing machines out and whip up something for this week’s party!  :)

Link up to anything you have refashioned or sewn yourself.  It doesn’t have to be dressy, and it doesn’t have to be worn on a Sunday.  It doesn’t even have to be worn by you.  Show it off!

  • No links to shops or giveaways, please.

  • Link back to Crafty Cousins on your blog too, okay?!

  • Bonus points for following Crafty Cousins or liking us on Facebook!  :)

  • Tell your friends about the What I Wore Sunday Link Party.  What’s a party without lots of partiers?

Can’t wait to see what you’ve got!  :)
