+ Another square top! A little lower this time ;)

So, I decided to make another square top because I stinkin’ LOVE it. But this time, I made the neckline lower and I made it a little longer (so cut the square a little longer or bigger than normal, and sew in a lot more on the sides). Tutorial here. And another polyester flowy floral fabric I thrifted from DI. I scored BIG that time. Luckily I’ve squeezed in a few fabrics till I make to one around here. I also made a circle skirt with elastic waist from this fabric, but I left that at home. So, that is coming later, way later. Oh and Beck is wearing his Uncle Zack’s shirt I refashioned into his size…thanks again Zack! Tutorial here.
So right outside of my apartment, we discovered 20 or so pet shops down these two ally ways. Animals are set outside of these individual shops in cages, buckets, or bags. There are turtles of all sizes (I really need to take a picture of them next time), fish, cats, dogs, all kids of birds, squirrels, chipmunks doing flips, bunnies, mice, loud crickets, and tons of other random animals. And I was thinking about it, some people probably buy some of these animals to eat….yummy. I can’t judge though, I eat random things that are worse for my body like McD’s nuggets and KFC.
Something else that is way random that I’ve noticed, and I actually find it kind of awesome. When walking around China you will be in a super modern area with skyscrapers and Prada stores, then down an ally one second later you find old pieces of old town, streets that haven’t been updated yet. Like the bottom two photos.  
Tomorrow is Beck’s Birthday! VERY EXCITED! My baby is growing up too fast.



  1. You look like a model, my lovely! Did you notice the slew of men checking you out?! I’ll bet you and Beck get alot of attention. Love, xoxox

  2. A while ago you made a question box. I can’t find it now, so I’m going to ask in a comment. What kind of fabric to do you use for the square tops? It seems to hang nicely so I’m pretty sure it’s not simply cotton.


  3. I seriously just spent over an hour looking at post upon post. You’ve inspired me! I’ve been spending so much time looking for clothes I like and clothes that work for me, when I could be making clothes I love and making them work for me! I can’t wait until I get a sewing machine for graduation in December :)

  4. Ok first of all these photos are so cute of you guys looking at the bird cages, and the others are really really nice too! Secondly you are so talented! I wish I could sew like that! I guess I never really tried, my mom is so good at it, and used to make all my outfitts as a kid, I wish I was so awesome at it too. Anyway your blog is really fantastic, Im so happy I stumbled upon it! :o)

  5. I’m new to your blog by about a week now, but I’m so excited for your journey to China! What a fun experience. Add to that your great refashions & I’m happy I found your blog!

  6. These pictures are so amazing. I’m jealous!

  7. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

  8. Right here is the right website for anybody who wants to understand this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a topic that’s been written about for a long time. Great stuff, just excellent!
