How do you say Delicious, De lovely, DEEE LUX???

ok Ill stop ..

I was inspired by this little frock at Urban (its by Lux)

So I had this sheet leftover from a circleskirt I made, and some striped Jersey knit from ANOTHER circle skirt I made..

So, I closed my eyes and said the magic words, and POOOOOF!! This is what came out

Arent you LOVIN the stray thread across the top?!? VERY HOT

Im too lazy to fix the pocket, and as for the little boats and paris at the bottom, well, I kinda thought that was pretty lame, but Im sure my Paris loving boyfriend will disagree. Its a little puffier, I think because I used sheets as the bottom portion- I also wish I had a serger to finish off the edges. BUT one thing I did think about was if I had an already existing tank, this would be a supereasy recon.

But overall, I love it. Its supercomfy and way super cute. 

Maybe Ill stencil something more.. me on it.

Yawwwnnn Im going to bed.

Thx for lookin

PS Seriously this would be a supereasy project to do again, so if I get good feeback, Ill post a tut.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box

This is gorgeous, its sooo cute, I was wondering if instead of a front pocket, if you put in side pockets, like little hideaway ones.

I love it!!  It's better than the UO one imo

I like the previous person's idea about two pockets but I think it's cute to keep it as front pockets.  As far as the wrinkly look, I think it's supposed to look that way.  If it bugs you, keep something small and weighted in the pocket and it'll pull it down.

You are so cute!!
