For the first DIY post of the year I’m sharing how I gave a plain old grey t-shirt some new life with an embroidered motif.

The holiday season and assignment marking has meant the blog has been neglected yet again, but to sign off for the year I wanted share one last DIYfor 2016.
I mentioned in my post about the #NoSpendber challenge I’m currently undertaking that I discovered I had 8 striped shirts. In this blog post I’m going to share how I refashioned one of my striped shirts to become a lace up shirt.
Wide leg pants (also known as palazzo pants) are quite the trend, but a wee issue I have being a petite person is the length. They’re usually waaaay too long for me so that I have to chop off a good portion of the leg, and by the time I chop it off the leg shape has changed and it kind of sits funny. I’ve tried culottes as wide leg pants but this only works for a certain cut of culotte. Here I’ll talk about how I made a pair of my own DIY wide leg pants as well as how I style them from a 5’0″ point of view.
I’m rather excited to share this refashion with you guys as it was a lot easier than I initially thought it would be.
I’ve been meaning to do this DIY for a while now – it’s so ridiculously easy that I was even able to do it with two crazy children running around me. I’ll definitely include this in my winter capsule as it’s an easy way to update a tired pair of jeans as well as give some interest to your capsule items.
One of the things I love to do in my (limited) spare time is to take an old or thrifted item and transform it into something new.
What’s a gal with a shopping ban to do when she spies something she’d love to try and buy? Obviously, one thing would be to walk away and really think about whether she needs it or not, as of course she has a capsule wardrobe to consider. The other thing would be to DIY that shiz, which I decided to do.
