I’ve been on a bit of an organization drive lately. I am a big subscriber to UFYH (heads up: some NSFW language is prominently displayed on the site), and with its motivational help and handy tips, I’ve been slowly un-destroying parts our apartment after a rather long-term guest moved out of the living room. In my most recent attack on a closet, I found some pretty cool stuff: some beautiful glass beads and a stack of men’s size XL t-shirts. Now that summer is upon us, I figured I could refashion some of the t-shirts into beach cover-ups (or, let’s be honest, things in which I can schlub around my apartment when I don’t have to go anywhere).
Never mind that as I write this, it’s only 61 degrees outside and we had to wake up in the middle of the night to turn off the fan. This cover-up will someday see the light (and sand) of the beach, but not until Chicago decides it’s ready for some consistently summery weather. Until then, I guess I’ll just have to settle with showing it off on my blog (:
I used this video tutorial, which was very well done. The whole project took less than an hour. If I were using this as a dress rather than a cover-up, I’d recommend using a t-shirt in sizes XXL or larger if possible – this was mighty short, even for my stumpy legs.
