Look at the back!

These pants look really plain in the front...
Topshop top, super old Gap pants, Vans slip ons

...but check out the back of the right leg!
I just love little details like this.
On the crafting front, making stuff for myself has taken a back seat as I make Christmas outfits for the kids. So far, I have this shirt done. Let's just say I'm a bit behind schedule...ahem....

This is the first tailored shirt I've done, and man, talk about ambitious. This was really beyond my skills set, but I really wanted to learn how to make it, so I persevered. Blood and tears, let me tellz yah...but it's done, so I'm happy:D

Are you all set for the holidays?


  1. I don't have too much else to get for Christmas

  2. Great job on the shirt! Love the embroidered details on the pants. I remember when those came out, I think Express used to have them too. I'm pretty much finished with Christmas shopping, thank goodness! :) Happy Monday! x

  3. I absolutely adore this! Hope you have a lovely day.
