Depending on your side of the world, it’s warming up or cooling down. It’s cooling down here but I refuse to accept that and so I’m still making Summer clothes >_>

I had this big shirt that I bought from the thrift store laying around and while it was super comfy, it wasn’t super feminine so I decided it was time for a make over.

Yay for make overs and t-shirt surgery. I am thinking of doing similar things with some of James’ old gigantic shirts.
