So red my eyes hurt September 3, 2011
I ended up wearing my grey Mango grandad T shirt with it but was too lazy to take photos. The shorts are really bright red. It really hurt my eyes when I had to look at it for extended period while sewing it. I got the fabric from a friend who was destashing. I want to make the shorts in black (duh..) but thought I’ll try out the ‘muslin’ piece using this red fabric first. Turns out it looks decent enough to be worn. I’m happy because I finally figure out how to sew a buttonhole. Yeah!!!

Short people can wear cropped trousers. Tell Tim Gunn I say so. Whether you look good or not depends whether you choose the right pair. I think, ahem! , in my humble opinion, if you have a longer torso and short legs like mine, you can still make cropped trousers work by choosing a pair with higher rise and slimmer cut. Paired with heels, it can negate the shortening effect of the trousers. If you have short torso and longer legs, then heaven is on your side, but still avoid low low butt crack flashing rise.
Got the bag via Etsy. Isn’t it lovely? Love the quilting. One of the best buys!

I thrifted the cardigan sometime ago for a dollar. A dollar! It looked almost brand new except for a small patch of mildew stain at one corner. That was removed easily using Vanish. I wore it for a while today but the weather was so warm it was removed and kept in my bag the entire day. This just further cements my decision not to get a boyfriend/ boys’ jacket. It would just be another white elephant in my wardrobe. I am tempted to clear my wardrobe by selling some items online. I may just do that..
The gingham is a DIY using a tank pattern by Grainline Even though I referred to the sizing chart, it turned out too small and too short.:( Nonetheless, it’s cute and reminds me of my kindergarten uniform.
