One to Three: Part 2

Here is the second installment of One to Three. You can find the first here. It's wonderful to get added value out of one piece - so if you have leftovers from tailoring a garment, get creative with it! This is what I did with left over fabric from hemming a lovely vintage skirt.

Part 2 - Head wrap / Help me, I'm DIYing! / If You Can't Join 'Em, Beat 'Em?

I decided I really wanted a head wrap with some of the remaining fabric from my skirt. My mother and I took an afternoon and had ourselves a DIY good time. I hadn't used a sewing machine in ages, so I was unnecessarily nervous throughout the whole process. It was really nerve-wracking - and although there was nothing at all at stake, I felt all types of panicky and overly cautions - DIY is not for the faint of heart! The whole time I was sewing I was making the "Eeeee face" (scrunch up your face with worry and say a long e sound. Yup, that's the face.) With my mother's help and soothing tones (mostly I think she was just rolling her eyes or laughing at me) I think it turned out alright.

The Cowles Conservatory - Regis Gardens is a pretty cool place to visit, ya know, if you enjoy plants. I had no idea what any of the plants were as I am not a botanical aficionado by any means, but I am really good at pointing at things and saying, "Those flowers looks cool," and, "Hey, look at that!"
"Hey look at that! Those flowers look cool!" See!

I decided to go pretty simple with the rest of the outfit again. I mean really simple. My turban was making me feel a bit bohemian, so I went with my super wide leg jeans. And when all else fails, there's no shame in wearing a good ole' "beater." You don't have to be super fancy all the time - unless you have a fancy beater- then you win. I don't really like calling them, "beaters," though. There should be another name, like - "sleeveless top not fancy enough to be a tank top top." I think it could catch on...

So there ya have it folks. Come back for Part 3!
