Okay, I don't want to say I'm officially and permanently back from hiatus, but I had to at least come back to share this:
Top: Made from Old Navy Tank, $2
Cardigan: Free (from friend)
Shorts: Old Navy, $12 (but I used a gift card)
Shoes: Target, $15
See that shirt? I made it yesterday, after going to the $2 Tank Top sale at Old Navy and fetching one of those white tanks. I cut up an XL white t-shirt I had lying around (I got it for free at an event), and used it to make ruffles.
Here's the inspiration for this project, a J.Crew tank that I spotted in the store:
I tried it on and I loved it, but I don't buy things for full price. Instead I made my own and paid $2 instead of $35!
