RIP favorite tshirt <3

I’ve had this same T-shirt since high school from Urban Outfitters and it is my absolute favorite. It’s fitted through the bust somewhat and then flows away from the body in a really pretty silhouette. Everyone always asked if I was pregnant because it really does look like a maternity shirt LOL Comfiest shirt ever!!
Well.. It passed away a couple of nights ago. I completely deconstructed it because it had too much wear and large holes started forming.
I don’t have any great photos of it on me before because it was just in pretty bad shape. BUT, I was able to take it apart carefully and use it as a base for a new shirt and it is almost identical!! I am so so so proud!! And super excited because that means I can recreate this top that is no longer sold, a million times over if I want!! So here are a few pics and I just *know* that you’ll be as pumped as I am 😉

My “Caroline” pattern test for Mouse House Creations

I had the privilege of testing a new women’s top/dress pattern by Mouse House Creations
It’s a very classic design with a ton of included options.

20140217-101434.jpg
* 5 sleeve lengths: sleeveless, cap, short, 3/4 length, and long.
* 4 skirt lengths: peplum, above knee, at knee, and below knee.
* 2 skirt styles: gathered and pleated
* 2 neckline heights
* optional peter pan collar
* optional inseam pockets
* optional belt loops

I chose to do the peplum with collar option which I LOVE!
This was my first time inserting a zipper and a collar and her instructions were awesome. 🙂
I see many more of these in my closet for sure!

She even has this in little girl sizes so Sophia and I can match!!
