Stripes & Elephants

Hello Readers. Sometimes clothing need a little tweak to make it more wearable. Small sewing projects can make a big difference. This striped shirt was great and it fit well. The V-neck was a little too deep for me to wear. It was also a little to cropped and low to wear to work. I decided to use this little elephant cami to fill in where the striped shirt was lacking. I love elephants and the spaghetti straps on the elephant shirt were to narrow for me to wear by itself. (My bra straps are at least 10x as big!)

These black pants were a hand-me-down from my daughter. I found 5 dollars in the pocket! If she reads this I will give her the $5 back. These pants were too big for me before the stay-at-home-and-snack-all-day order. Now they fit great! Thanks Corona!

I sewed the 2 shirts together on my new/old sewing machine. It is finally running like it should.

This shirt (And the pants!) were perfect for work. Very casual business-casual.

Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.

You look great in your black and white outfit! The elephant top adds some nice detail to the stripes. Black pants always look stylish.

Myself and probably several hundred thousand others join you in wondering how to get rid of those covid pounds. All that cooking seemed like a good idea at the time.

Hi KD, Thanks for the comment. I was happy to have a pair of black pants, so versatile.
Happy sewing to you!

So did you lose the $5 yet? ha ha

I love what you did with this top. You're right, sometimes it only takes a little to make a big difference!
