I have been cutting up too many pieces of clothing these days. Last week, if you do follow me on Instagram, you would have known that i turned my never-used-before crochet vest, added strands of yarn, into a fringed crochet vest. Just yesterday, I cut a never-worn-before tubed jumpsuit and turned it into a highwaisted flared pants. The jumpsuit was way too long and i did not want to alter its length. So i cut off its tubed piece, added an elastic band, hand stitch the piece and it was totally a success. 

I love the pants. It moves with every step I take. I like the flare of the pants. It is super flattering on me. I find that some flare or palazzo pants don't flatter me at all. It makes me bottom heavy which is why I usually skip on them. Oh, and just this morning, I took out the red shawl I used in my Youtube tutorial, and cut it lengthwise. I have the habit of using my shawls as fabric for DIY projects. 

Have an awesome weekend and thank you for reading.
I am really grateful I have awesome readers. Thank you so much. It has motivated me to continue.
I love all of you.
