Cutie Ruffle Sweater Top // Sweater Refashion

I'm back! I've been making some changes here and there, and I hadn't been able to blog much. I recently relaunched my online boutique, BeeBee Boutique (search @beebeebtq on Instagram), organized my entire sewing/office space, and made some blog changes. I am very excited for all this change. Change is usually not my friend, but this time I'm embracing it! :)

So here is my refashion for today! It is very sweet, dainty, and whimsical. I used a sweater with one sleeve. (yes one sleeve! LOL, I used the other sleeve for a project back at FIDM) I just love how it turned out!

1. I chopped off the sleeve.
2. I made new sleeves out of the old one. I left a little extra white fabric on the side for seam allowance.
3. I pinned in the sleeve to the armhole.
4. TA DA! New sleeve. :)

1. I used the pink sleeve to make two cuffs.
2. My cuff piece was about 4".
3. I folded the cuff piece in half.
4. That cuff piece was pinned to the sleeve, raw edges together.
5. TA DA! Cuffs. :)

1. I cut the side pieces as shown.
2. The top part was gathered.
3. I sewed on the piece to the sweater.
4. The piece sewed on the sweater. :)
5. Since the selvedge (white part) was showing on the pink fabric piece, I decided to add some cute little trim.
6. Much better. :)
7-9. To tie everything all together, I added a cute little ruffle piece to the front of the sweater. :)

(teehee, don't pay attention to the fact that the backdrop is the same fabric as the side ruffles. :) )

This design is for sale here

See the white fabric I used for the long sleeves? It has a light chevron pattern, so lovely!


Mirror OOTD

I've gone back to mirror ootd selfies for now! Why? I'm currently in the process of organizing and revamping my sewing room/office. Clutter has always bothered me, but I had never really done anything about it...until now! I'm actually going to write a blog post all about organizing on a budget once I'm done with all the craziness. So here is my style diary entry for today. P.S., I love the color mint, even in winter!

Fresh Start 2016!

Happy New Year everyone!
I can't believe I hadn't blogged since last year... ;)
Okay, I just had to. After all there's only one time a year when I can throw out those cheesy New Year's jokes. :)

So, this was my outfit for yesterday actually. I was so excited about the New Year's Eve party at Casa de Fruta, that I forgot to edit my pictures. I had a blast with my family, and I highly recommend it for anyone who is planning out their next New Year's Eve. For only $40 you get a lot AMAZING food catered from their restaurant, party favors, dancing, coffee/tea, and dessert. It's "sew" much fun! :) P.S. no one is paying me for this review, just my own personal opinion. <3
