DIY TOP + Wide Leg Jeans & Editing Updates

Hello Darlings!

Im so exaushted, I feel like a hamster on those spinning wheels that won't stop, LOL! so many things have been going on at once and I am trying s hard to stay on top of it all. I will be catching up on email this weekend so bare with me; I will respond but need a few more days please. I think we need to start a "Mimi Quits Her Day Job Fund" LMBO so I can just do this blog...

Anyway so I have been editing the first portion of this tutorial and it is coming along fantastic, so excited to finish it! This one has some extra wonderful stuff to learn and is also LONG so editing is taking a bit longer than usual. I also have added options to this tutorial (i.e. Jumper to Romper, Strapless or Tank etc.) I am hoping to be all done by the morning...fingers crossed.

Today I am wearing this UBER comfy oversized top I made using McCalls 6556 which is a SUPER EASY pattern, I think it is labeled as a dress which I will prob make again in a fancier fabric but I knew I wanted a casual one for my jeans ;-)

  13. Great look Miss Thing! Love your polish (invasive question #77: do you polish your own nails? I love that they always pop with your outfit. If you do, any tips so that my weekly mani-pedi fund can be added to my fabric fund? :) ).

    That top is DIVINE!

  25. Love that top. I must have looked at that pattern like 20 times on sale, and I kept doubting it because of the girl on the package. Maybe they should replace it with your pic. Ibet more girls would buy it then! Lol. I'm gonna but it now and make that thing. Love how it looks on you. You rock it well

  26. I have to agree with Tiffanie This top/dress is Definitely a snatch and run lol Absolutely Amazing! I don't sew and don't know nobody that sews but I am going to need this in my life period.
