Finals Are Over.  College is over.... Forever.  I graduated this weekend.  After taking finals, packing up my apartment, graduating, hauling everything home only to unpack it, I needed to seriously de-stress.  So I decided to sew.

Normally, I crochet, but since I'll be starting a grown-up job in a couple of weeks (hello real world!), I decided to make something work-appropriate.  I wanted something simple and mindless to sew yet classic and fresh looking.

After a productive trip to JoAnn's, I scored some amazing green and white fabric with a chic floral print.  I'm a sucker for anything classic with a young vibe.  I also picked up a vintage belt at the new Goodwill that just went in by my house for $1.00. See, great things do happen when you're away at school for 4 years!

And here is the end result.  Please note that I have not showered in 2 days, ha.  Only for you, my Craftster friends.  Smiley




And beltloops!


I used New Look Pattern # 6843, Style C

Hope you like it!
