+ What I’ve been up to…

I finally finished and sent out a box pleat skirt to a fellow blogger! I’m SO excited to see it on her! But very nervous….she lives all the way in Oklahoma and I have NO idea if it will fit. nervous nervous. I realized today that I would seriously consider wearing it inside out with it’s cute big white buttons and reverse box pleats. mmmmm. love. Want to know how to make a box pleat skirt? Here is the tutorial.
Anyway…I seriously have a million ideas and projects that I want to act upon. SO MANY. But, I was wondering…do you guys have any? Anything you want me to copy catwalk? i.e. send me a pic of something you want a tutorial of?
 Also….don’t forget about the giveaway!


  1. Woot woot! I’m SO excited to get it! It looks adorable Liz!!!

  2. That skirt looks great, even inside out :) I don’t have any ideas for a tutorial right now… I’d say choose a project that you have been thinking of. That way you will definitely be excited about doing it. Plus, I’d love to see what ideas you’ve been brewing!
