Blue Jean Baby

Wednesday, February 17, 2010
I took this shirt in a little yesterday. I'm so proud of myself. I've tried a few times on other shirts but I messed them up so bad, they're unwearable! Yeah, I'm that bad with a sewing machine. Now that it fits me snug as a bug in a rug, you bet I'll be wearing this more often!

Wish me luck on my modeling audition tomorrow. I just hope I don't make a fool of myself!!! Maybe now I'll be a little more serious about eating better! (Not ramen...which I didn't eat today..promise. Okay, that's a lie..)

  2. i couldn't go near a garment with a needle and thread to save my life. this looks fab, i've been searching for the perfect denim button-down for what feels like forever.

  3. Good job! I'm so jealous that you know how to alter your clothes! maybe you can teach me? I definitely love this outfit, and I like your new hairstyle. Not that it's new, but the curl looks good!

    also, let me know how your modeling goes! you'll do great!

  25. Great job taking in the shirt! It's so gratifying to be able to alter your clothes, and opens up many more possibilities! (as long as you don't buy something thinking you'll alter it, then let it sit in a 'to do' pile for three months...)

  58. Oh I love this...it is so simple, but truly one of my favorite outfits of yours.

    That's funny because I was actually thinking, "wow, she would make such a great model" before I read your entire post. Good luck with the audition!

  68. it may sound a little weird but i have been avoiding denim tops and dresses cause for some reason it reminds me so much of the 90s and thus, makes me think it's outdated. but heck, it looks so good on you! :) you'll be great in your audition ;) you carry clothes really well :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. oh my elaine ok 1. you are so stinking gorgeous i can't handle it! i love the curls on you i looks really pretty! 2. that is so awesome that you tailored your own shirt! i totally want to try it! also let me know when you get some yarn i will send you over the pattern for the flowers they are so so easy!!

  79. You make basics look sooo good! Great job on the tailoring, and you'd make a fantastic model. And I think ramen is delicious, in addition to being fast and cheap, so it's a hard habit to break. :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. I love the top! The jeans look like the perfect jeans!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Great job taking it in, Elaine! I'd love to learn how to sew, that's near the very top of my wish list. When you become a pro you can teach me :)

  83. Wow, what a great DIY tailoring job! I have serious denim shirt envy. My boyfriend has one with pearl snap buttons. I am on the look out for an imperfect thrifted one (that I will try to tailor, like you have!)

    ReplyDelete
  84. Looking good, Elaine! I'm still a dork when it comes to using a sewing machine, even an electric one at that.lol!
