Some of you may remember the Free People skirt I copied in December 2011 (below). Free People was selling it for $128. I decided to make it myself given the design was incredibly simple. So, $15 in materials and 20 minutes later, voila. Fun stuff!
Anyways, I started making some red cigarette pants yesterday (another side project—does that mean this is actually a side SIDE project? I think yes), and I spotted a bunch of that white rose fabric I’d used for the skirt that I forgotten about. So, I put the red pants aside and decided to make this shirt!
What do you think? Do you like the skirt or shirt better?
Or, are you more like Shell belle who was bored by it all and decided to nap in the overgrown asparagus?
I was very excited this morning to see an article about my clothes in the Santa Cruz Sentinel! It’s great to see handmade clothing getting exposure and attention. I feel like it’s a lost art, and/or skill, that is slowly making a comeback and I am proud to be a part of that. You can read the full article at the Sentinel website.
Thanks for reading and supporting handmade clothing!
P.S. It’s my mom’s birthday today. Happy Birthday Mom! Love you!
I recently was interviewed by writer Christa Martin. She’s awesome and her blog is really great for insight into beauty products, trends, and fashion. Her scope of coverage extends beyond Santa Cruz and includes San Francisco and New York, which is the perfect way for a local Santa Cruzian to feel connected to the bigger picture.
