I haven’t been doing a whole heck of a lot of sewing lately. The boys have been crazy, I’ve been sick, we’ve been trying to institute some new, better habits when it comes to keeping the house clean and frankly, with the winter refusing to end, I haven’t wanted to do much but hide under a thick blanket and glare at the sky.
That being said, I have done some alterations to clothes…but I haven’t posted about them, because, to be honest, I really haven’t wanted to take pictures of myself. It’s overcast, so the lighting for pictures has been awful… also because it’s overcast, I’m grumpy…it’s cold, so I’m generally wrapped in at least 7 layers of clothing, which looks, and feels, extraordinarily frumpy. My hair is a wreck because of all of the new growth making a poof ball of fly-aways, and hormone changes and the weather have wreaked havoc with my skin.
Basically, I’m vain…and I feel like I look like crap lately, and haven’t wanted it documented. Go go gadget-ego. I won’t insult you guys by pretending these haven’t been photo edited. I have 2 small children, allergies and the photoshop know-how to make the dark circles under my eyes disappear. Of course I take advantage of it.
Anyways, SEWING! You guys didn’t come here to hear me talk about how winter sucks and makes me want to crawl in a hole, right? I finally got around to altering a few of the maternity tops I made when I was pregnant with R. (You can click on the links below the pictures to see the pre-altered tops)
This is a pretty straight-forward alteration, I know, but, as always, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to comment or email!
