83 days to go: Customised Copycat
I loved Jessica's look yesterday, it was so stylishly simple.
There were a few problems in recreating the look.
1. It wasn't as hot here so the cami and sandals weren't an option.
2. None of my cami tops or t-shirts fit me right.
The solution came in the most unexpected way.
My daughter had a tantrum last night which meant an early bed-time.
When she calmed down I went upstairs and sat with her.
She had been reading a book I had given her at Christmas about how to customise clothes.
She was looking at the section on t-shirts.
After I had tucked her in I went to my room and found some old t-shirts in the throw-out pile.
I love the colour of the red t-shirt it matches one of my skirts perfectly but it was a high neck and very long.
The solution lay in a pair of scissors.
OK so it's not perfect but I am pretty pleased with the results.
