*Disclaimer: I know, 52 is a lot warmer than most of you experience in the winter, but....its Hawaii
Today just so happened to be a scattered shower/no school day which meant one thing: indoor entertainment. Luckily for me, my Little Guy enjoys crafting as much as I do. So after a scavenger hunt through my refashion drawer we came up with this:
an old/tunic that I originally bought from a Forever 21 type junior store and
a jersey racerback tank.
The print and colors of this tunic were to die for but had one major problem....
the super plunging neckline!
Since the scoop-neck neckline of the racerback is more flattering, I decided to make this the new top portion of the tunic by cutting it below the bust.
I then seam ripped the tunic above the elastic ruched waist.
With right sides together, placed the tank over the tunic and stitched all around the waist using a zig zag stitch to allow the stretch.
Snipped a few inches of the bottom and hemmed...
And the problem plunging neckline is no more.
Of course with all this cabin fever the Little Guy couldn't contain himself.
Here he is doing his best Mary Poppins impersonation while I'm trying to get a good after pic and again...
When I wasn't looking...talk about talented.
