It has been very cold here. Surprisingly. Middle of July and it has rained for 4 days and not gotten above 65*. Sort of limiting. Even now that the sun is out, I am still wearing pants and two sweaters because I am freezing. I refuse to close the windows because it is summer and I would rather wear the sweaters with a fresh breeze. My grandmother is like that. She loves the beach and when she lived there, her patio door would be open and she would be heaped in blankets. I also drive with the window down a bit and the heater on my feet…
I had this big shirt that was a clearance rack score. The sleeves were too short for Lee and I considered adding a cuff, but I decided to use it for myself. It seemed like a great “boyfriend” cut if you scooped out the neck. I look silly in things that aren’t fitted, at least that is the way I feel. So I took some pictures and here is a little tutorial.
Then I scooped out the neck with a lean to one shoulder. So that it would hang a bit. But I didn’t want it falling off. So after I hemmed the raw edge I added a little lace strap to that side.
See there is the lace. I was too cold to wear just the sweater, so I wore a tank under it.
I have been very busy this week. We are prepping for a wedding this weeend and I made the boys some seersucker shorts ( pics coming later). I made Lee some linen pants ( pics coming later). I have been doing lots of laundry and I hope to actually be packed and ready to go tonight, although I lag behind.
Lee got the barn frame up and put a window in this morning, We are getting the steel siding next week, then a concrete floor and we are well on our way to done. I move into the studio next week and I am super excited!!! My sale ends then, get it while you can!
