So I have this top I made from a huge t-shirt. Problem is: A, the straps make it against dress code at my school. and B, I had some fabric left over from the shirt. So I made this matching shrug today, in the photos I'm wearing the top it goes with. I'm pretty sure anyone else would have done this a billion times easier(and better), but it took me forever, and I got so frustrated, but I got it done, and I like it.

What do you think?


I made the tutu this morning, cuz I was bored:)


The front


The back

Love it!  (and even though I'm definitely old enough to be your mom - I love the tutu, too!)
So, does the shrug make it 'legal' according to the school dress code?  Some fuddy-duddy administrators might frown at the "peeks" of skin front & back....  Just checking.

The school where I work keeps a laundry basket full of enormous sweatshirts to loan for the day for just such an occasion, but I think your outfit's adorable - and more so, 'cuz you made it yourself!

Yea, our dress code just says to have sleeves that are at least 3 inches, and nothing see thru, but that's not a problem:)

Lucky. My school would have been all over the peeks.

Anyway very nice. I love how big the tutu is. I wouldn't have been able to tell you made this if I just saw you on the street.
