Simply Stripes

By looking over my last few posts, you might think I have a thing for stripes.  Well, I guess I do!  Especially when it comes to these colors!


This oversized t-shirt dress had been hanging in my refashion closet for some time.  It was to be a simple refashion, really just an alteration, but I never got around to it.  Well, my husband I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary by spending a few days on the Oregon coast and I thought it would be a perfect time for some "guilt free" sewing.  You know, no housework to do, no meals to fix, no taxes to calculate, etc.!  He was going to enjoying reading and relaxing, and I figured I would sew.  We had a great time and I was able to get a few projects finished.  Plus, an added bonus was having the beautiful Oregon coast as a backdrop for the "after" pictures!

Only one process picture in this tutorial because, well, that's about all there was to it!


We enjoyed walking around Old Town and found this great vintage car parked in front of a cafe.  The color matched my dress perfectly!


While packing for our getaway, I grabbed a few necklaces to bring along.  This one happened to match perfectly with the dress.  And, the best part was that I picked it up for only $2!


The rest of the pictures were taken on the dock at the Port of Siuslaw.




I guess ombre is popular even in nature!  Check out these barnacle-covered piles!






I like to link to these great parties!
