Hey Everyone! It’s been forever since I’ve been able to sit down and update the blog. But if you’ve been keeping up with my Instagram, you’ve noticed my few weeks away were spent out of the country, sewing, and talking selfies with cute horses. 🐴 🙃

As I prepare to enter chapter adulthood, I am focused on finding my own personal style. I’ve been working on building comfortable everyday pieces and a few statement pieces with my sewing machine.This top was made using an Ankara Print Cotton Fabric from DaViva Fabric. I altered the New Look D0592 pattern with the following alterations:

-Removed the dress portion

-Removed the elastic band section

-Added 2″ to the bottom section

This brown button down skirt worn with this crop top is from JC Penny. I purchased it for $2.17. Find out how HERE.
