ufo sightings

probably not my most original thrift/refashion ever.. but i apparently forgot that i knew how to do elastic ruching for .. oh the last year.  or two.  and with my amazing chalk skills [sidewalk sized not fancy sewing sized] i ruched 3 rows at the waist, and holy crap the lines are straight.  genius.

i bought some elastic and "vintage" belt buckles on etsy.  and made some belts.  after the pieces sat on my desk since ahem.  august.  looking downward in shame.

a belt in purple as well.  i bought this ridiculous giraffe fabric months ago as well.  and finally hemmed the bottom of the skirt.  it is absurdly twee.  and i will attempt to age it a bit for work.  like..with a purple blazer.  and pumps.  and a collared shirt.  or something.

a not-sorbetto-patterned high-low tank.. the pattern was made from a tank top i bought at h&m.  and the top was originally the skirt below.  and the wool skirt received a serious chop.  like half the length of the skirt.  and the lining as well, which should prove very convenient seeing as it is nearly tights weather and static is a bitch.

two simple skirt hack jobs.  well the grey one was a little more involved since the lining was sewn into the front button placket.  but i did some stitch unpicking and sorted that right out. 

and finally... the most absurd palazzo/pajama/work pants ever.  from target.  and i finally hemmed them about 2".  work appropriate with a blazer?  right?

oh and ufos.  if you were wondering.  and read all the way down to here thinking "this girl is crazy".  it stands for unfinished objects.  and technically i finished 9.  so suck on that.
