dressed: black and white and gingham

i've always been addicted to gingham, though this is my only black and white piece. i think i might like it even more than red and white.

gingham shorts, thrifted. leotard, american apparel. vintage loafers, thrifted.

sewn: the boos brothers

if there's one thing that almost all thrift shops runneth over with, it's weird, giant t-shirts. while i'm super into the weird part, the giant aspect isn't very appealing. solution: PUT A PEPLUM ON IT. i used this tutorial from boat people vintage to makeover a big, ghostly t, and ta-da! this particular t-shirt was only slightly huge, and so my peplum turned out to be sort of a mini peplum since the amount of leftover fabric from the bottom wasn't too great. if you want a longer peplum, make sure your shirt is xxxtra large, or even use a different fabric for the peplum portion!

mr. big stuff

and then!
