KCW: upcycled skirts & and pair of leggings

Kids CLothes Week-upcycled striped skirt

I'm kinda in love with this one because it was SOOOOOO easy. I had this adorable striped skirt that my bestie had given me, but alas it was too long because I am a shortie.

I love raglan tees. Not only are the sleeves SO easy (straight lines? I got this), but they allow for some cute pattern mixing or color blocking.

I was actually saving this fabric to make myself a top someday, but … [Read more...]
