A visit to the neighborhood baseball field turned into the funnest blog shoot I’ve ever had. The players’ parents insisted I use a baseball bat as a prop, while I insisted their kids would be naturals in front of the cam and obviously, they were! They giggled and teased each other as they posed…so adorable!I wore my most recent transformation, another one of those frumpy muumuu (certainly not MiuMiu) dresses in dire need of a makeover, in this case a fifteen minute one that required nothing but scissors, thread and a needle. I removed the elastic from the sleeves and turned the hem into a not-so-boring bubble one. Easy peasy and incredibly inexpensive.
I found this frumpy but kinda sweet muumuu-shaped dress at a thrift store in the L.5 ($0.25) box and brought it home to turn it into a more versatile summer two-piece. I love the feeling of finding far-from-impressive clothing items and performing surgery on them. It’s great for my currently limited budget (I’m on saving mode…plans, plans plans!) and keeps my sewing skills from getting rusty.
I revamp most of my thrifted items but unfortunately I rarely ever post about the “Before”. Sometimes it’s just a small detail, but ohhh what a difference something as tiny as buttons can make!

Anyway, I love Before & Afters anything so I’m hoping you guys do to, because I plan to turn this into a new post category. Any clever ideas for the category name? Feel free to leave your feedback! And if you think this sailor collar is a little too crazy, feel free to vent out as well!
|You’ll need: 2 dish scrubbies, a headband (preferably one that’ll blend in with the color of your hair), glue gun (the lazy way, I know) and liquid paper to mark where you want the scrubbies to be placed. I used liquid paper because it was lying around the house and I could easily scrape it off, but you can use anything else.
