Hello, my name is Cinnamon Sangria and I hate to spend money on clothing when I know I can make it myself. :) As mentioned before I'm making a lot of my summer wardrobe. Below is a shirt that I saw on J-Crew's website. It's fresh and summery and well, it's just a cotton t-shirt. I don't remember how much it cost but I knew it was more than I was going to spend for a t-shirt. And I knew I could make it in no time.
Off to Target to buy 2 t-shirts and well $100 more of STUFF cause you know you can't leave that store with less than $100 spent. Right?
1 Friday night, 2 t-shirts, and 1 hour later. I've got a new top for Saturday lunch with girlfriends. Not bad if I do say so myself. This shirt will definately be joining me on my travels this summer. I'm going to make one in white next as I think I could dress that up with bright jewelry. Clearly this one has sleeves and the original J-Crew one doesn't. Maybe I'll make the white one sleeveless. Also I bought the t-shirts that are 95% cotton and 5% spandex. Big mistake as I had to sew down the ruffles as they were curling up too much. Next time, 100% cotton only. Live and learn. I still love it. I hope you do too.
