A simple alteration of making the sleeves shorter and narrowing the bodice. . . The reason why I think every person, especially a woman(no, not being old fashioned, keep reading?), should learn to sew is it helps you to love the body you have now, not when you’re 10 lbs. lighter. By having the clothes conform to the body you have right now, instead of trying to conform your body to a certain clothing item/size. Instead of buying a certain item and saying, “I’m going to wear this once I lose the 10 lbs.”, you alter the clothing instead to fit that beautiful curve, shape and size that your mama gave you! To celebrate the beautiful, capable body that you have NOW. . . Of course I think every man should learn to sew too(so excited to teach my son when he’s a little older!), but their clothes are more straight down and not as form fitting. But that just means it’ll be much easier! So there’s an incentive for you men! . . I have several dresses that I plan on adding simple alterations to, to make them fit my body better, would you like a tutorial on that? Comment with your favorite fruit if so! ??????
Refashioned a men’s shirt into a crop top + skirt set for my girl in The Refashion Runway gingham challenge. After competing in that competition in 2015, I told myself that it would be the last competition I’d ever enter, I strongly dislike them! I like celebrating everyone’s unique talents, not comparing and critiquing others to my own, which was what I found myself doing, being the worst critique of my own work but also nit-picking other contestants’ work. I also found out how competitive I could be.? . . Do any of you feel the same with competitions? Everyone’s at such a different stage in learning, or had different opportunities and so many other factors, it seems so unfair to be competing with others to measure who is better than the other. Or do you love competitions? I can see why some would, it definitely pushes you and challenges you to be better than ever before! So which one are you?

Refashioned my old XS shirt into a peplum top for my daughter for the 4th of July last year, along with a matching headband. Link in bio for more photos + a full tutorial. . . #sharingmyheartwithyoust I’ve been touring homes for the Parade of Homes the past few days(newly built homes are open to the public to walk through) and many were multiple million dollar homes, 14,000 square ft., swimming pool, basketball court, exercise room, sauna, dance room, movie room, and a 12 car garage.? I know it’s hard not to compare our lives to others who seem more “successful” than us but I hope you can realize & internalize that what we own is separate from how much we are worth. What we own doesn’t add any more value nor does it define us. Me going viral and gaining lots of followers doesn’t add anymore value to who I am nor does it make me worth more. I was just as cool, worth just the same as when I had 10 followers! A billionaire is worth no more than a homeless person. The world labels people such as “This 35-year old entrepreneur who is worth 15 million” but that could be further from the truth on people’s real worth. Once we can separate the fact that what we own(and so many other things I’ll discuss on a later post) does not and should not add to our self esteem or self worth, or I cannot emphasize this enough, how we judge and value others, or especially treat others, we’d always be confident and less prone to be offended nor play the comparison game nor feel the need to keep up with the Joneses. . . So how do you measure someone’s value? You don’t. Because we are all worth infinite amount, every single person. No matter what. We were all born with this birthright of infinite worth and no matter what you do, no matter what happens to you, what you own, what you look like, what weaknesses/strengths you have, that tremendous worth never changes or goes away. It cannot be gained nor lost since it’s never left you and will always stay with you.
I woke up this morning with a thousand+ (plus counting) friends on here, welcome! Could you tell me where I was featured? I’m so curious! Or it could be that you had a vivid, romantic dream about me and woke up with tears streaming down your face of tears of joy because you knew we were meant to be….?? Well, which one is it???❤️ . . A throw back to turning this plain, medium size dress into a bow-tie, short sleeve dress. Link to the tutorial in my profile.

My newest Refashion Revision is this $4 Thrifted XL Men’s Shirt transformed into a pinafore dress. The bib part is detachable so you can wear it as a pinafore or a skirt! To see more photos or a video tutorial, link is in my bio. What do you think of this refashion? Comment with an emoji your reaction! . . p.p.s. A friend who recently went back to work told me today how she feels like she’s constantly failing as a mother and as an employee. To read my reply to her, link in bio then click “Failing as a mother”. And let me know if you sometimes feel the same?
Here’s a green dress I refashioned, Happy St. Patrick’s! I usually do something super simple like put food coloring in the kids’ milk or eat green candy but ever since we found out a few years ago Jay is part leprechaun, I mean Irish(one time I literally said that to our friends, I forgot “Irish” so I said, “Did you know Jay is part… what do you call it, leprechaun?”??♀️) I’ve been trying a little harder, kind of, so Jay & I went grocery shopping to go buy shepherds pie from Costco(I’ve never had this pie) but Jay said he wasn’t a fan so we ended up buying a chicken pot pie instead. As we were driving back home, the kids called us and told us they made a leprechaun trap and hid in the corner under blankets for a long, long time but he never came. They sounded so disappointed so we made a spontaneous stop at a store to buy treats & a box of lucky charms, and then we were driving home but we were super hungry and when we drove by Burger Supreme, it sounded really good so we made a U-turn to get hamburgers & fries and served it with green fry sauce for dinner. Then while the kids were bathing, the leprechaun came and was so clumsy and loud which the kids heard so they hurriedly finished their baths and came out to find their trap broken but with treats inside. Our oldest was sure she found a footprint & his belt??♀️ but it was really tiny so my second child wrote a letter to the leprechaun, “Dear leprocon, pleas leav your stuf like pans, pantys, hat, belt and shirt and shoes right hear. P.S. Thank you for the ice bracrs and lucky charms.” So that was our celebration. I love the innocence of little kids and how they make the Holidays so much fun. . . Any fun traditions you do for St. Patty’s? Or do you put food coloring in random food and call it good like me???♀️ You’re a wonderful mom either way!
My favorite “pink” refashion I’ve done. It was for Refashion Runway, a sewing competition I entered where it was due on Friday and I started it the day before on Thursday at 6 p.m.? I frantically had my husband take a before photo before it got dark, dyed it to blush pink, then cut out the sleeves from the jacket to add to the sleeveless dress, cut the dress in half to separate the top bodice and the skirt, sewed it back together, added darts, a new zipper, cut it shorter, made it form fitting, then used the extra fabric from the jacket to add the floral details. . . The theme was “Asymmetrical”, hence the different sized florals on each side. I got done as the sun was setting down, so if you see an after photo of me wearing it, the photo looks super grainy due to a lot of lightening to the photo. But I got it done! And it won that week’s challenge! Do you think it was worth all the anxiety, stress and staying up all night?

Bonus points for you if you’ve watched my new Refashion Revision episode! If you haven’t watched, link is in bio, I’ll still give you some extra credit if you go watch it right now.? . . This tutorial is more detailed and lengthy than my other ones I’ve done(this one is 9 mins., the average length of my other tutorials are 4-5 mins.). So my question for you is, do you prefer it to be more detailed and meticulous step-by-step tutorial like this one or do you prefer the 4-5 min. version because it’s like Pinterest, you know you’re never going to attempt to do it but it looks cool and pinning it makes you feel like you’re somehow a part of that cool hack by associating yourself to it by pinning it, kinda like you see a clothing item you really love and you know you’re not going to buy it because it’s too expensive but touching it and caressing the fabric on your skin, breathing into the fabric so you leave your DNA and putting it in your cart for one hour while you shop makes you feel like you “owned” it for a bit so parting ways seems less dramatic and heartbreaking and makes you feel little better before you have to put it back and exit out of the store? . . Do you like my deep, profound analogy? Or do you feel like your I.Q just dropped 5 pts. after reading that?? I am just here to inspire you with my deep perspective, you’re welcome. #sharingmydeepwithyou . . So to sum it all up… Do you prefer longer tutorial or short? And am I the only one who does the above when shopping… minus the breathing part?
$3 thrift find dress into a skirt. . . Happy MLK Day! Here are my favorite quotes from the wise & great Martin Luther King Jr. . . “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” . “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” . “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” . “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” . “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” . “The time is always right to do what is right.” . “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” . “Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.” . “Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.” . “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” . “We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now.” . . Do you have a favorite quote?
Looking for a dress like this so I can make this jumpsuit again, but better. See the elastic waist? It’s always bugged me how cheap it looks. I literally used every part of the dress and barely converted it into a jumpsuit, so I didn’t have enough fabric to make a waist-tie. If you flipped it inside out, you’d see an orange fabric on the waistband because I didn’t even have fabric to cover the elastic! I’d sew on two waist-ties on the sides so I could tie it in the front to hide the elastic waist, which will make it look more tied together and expensive. I’m all about making clothes that look expensive for $5 or less.? Would you want me to make this DIY again but do a video tutorial this time? ??????
