It happened. I knew it would, honestly. No one has a Top 10 hit every time.
I had my first fail.
|This refashion started out as a stretched out green T-shirt|
Case in point:
Wobisobi has adorable refashions. Many are no sew options to refashion t-shirts. Since many of my t-shirts are either stretched beyond recognition or just plain ol' too big, I figured I'd give another one a try. I found this adorable little ditty and in a few easy cuts with my nice fabric scissors, I was left with...
A cut up green t-shirt.
Ugh. I had originally decided to wear this to church, as I had committed this refashion crime on a Saturday evening and was singing at church the next morning. My bestie, Nicole, couldn't understand why I wouldn't wear a green t-shirt vest. Clearly she hadn't had the opportunity to see it yet. Later in the week, I stopped by Nicole's house to hang out with her boys for a little while. Nicole's husband was putting on his running shoes, looked up and said, "I'm trying to figure out what exactly it is that you're wearing there."
Defiant, crooked eyebrow, rolled eyes and sucked in cheeks. Envision it.
I retorted that it was a failed craft project that Nicole had to witness. I didn't immediately remove the hideous fail that was my "vest," though I probably should have. Later, when Mr. Bestie returned from his jog, he said, "No, really. What ARE you wearing?"
Shut up, Nicole. I know you're laughing reading this.
|"No, really. What ARE you wearing?"|
|Where did the vest go? |
It's that little strip of green above my waist.
Also, if you have back fat, a refashion with an open back is not likely to be flattering.
