Usually, making a piece of clothing from scratch kinda scares me. But this thing was seriously so easy!



Sewn from super soft drape knit I got on sale, I then dip dyed it ombe and machine embroidered the back! The dye did something a little unexpected... it was supposed to just be brown, but a pink color started working its way out of the top layer of tie. That just ended up being a happy accident.



The back design even kinda has an "ombre" look.



I'm adoring the look of it with big chunky belts too. It's very flattering on those days I'm not feeling so swanky.





I love it! I'm going to make a couple more and wear them all summer long! Maybe in fall I'll look at sewing one with long sleeves.
