The Thrifted Blue & White Infinity Dress – Confessions and Changes

Hey Guys,

..

I’m Dropping in with a Mini post featuring this Infinity maxi dress that I rescued from my local Goodwill for $6.99.This is actually the first Infinity piece that I’ve ever owned and it “may” possibly be the last.

..

..

Seriously I don’t know how I feel about this dress…..It is a cute dress and I REALLY adore the large graphic blue and white floral print but I am not really feeling too comfortable wearing a dress that doesn’t allow for traditional undergarments if you know what I mean. (My girls are begging for the support of a back strap…lol)

But that’s the beauty of thrifting a garment when you sew. If you don’t love it exactly the way that it is, you can change it.So I am pretty sure that this dress will be a future refashion when I get up the nerve to go back down that road again.Which leads me nicely to the subjects of refashioning and thrifting.

..

..

When I started this blog 3 years ago it was my goal to feature both thrifted and refashioned garments BUT somewhere along the way I got caught up !!!!I was featuring mostly sewn garments hoping that it would help me to be more accepted in the online sewing community and also help me to grow my blog following. CRAZY RIGHT???🤔😐😬This faulty reasoning ultimately lead to me feeling like I could only post when I had a sewing project to feature.

And with a full-time job and other life responsibilities, who needs that added pressure in their lives? I know I don’t.All that said, this post is the dawn of a new day and a turning point for stylebyintuition.com.

..

Over the next few weeks I’ll be making some changes to the blog to bring it more in line with my original vision.I do hope that you like them. In the meantime, feel free to drop a few lines in the comment section below. I love hearing from you and your feedback is always appreciated and welcomed.

Until next time….

The White Pencil Midi Skirt

Hey There Guys,

Dropping by with a quick post for my latest DIY this super fast and easy white pencil midi skirt.

This is fabric that I purchased while in New York a few years ago. I can’t even tell you why I purchased this white fabric because I don’t usually wear white. I guess I was all caught up in the excitement of fabric shopping in New York for the first time.

..

I actually almost gave it away until I stumbled across a few cute outfits on Pinterest featuring white pencil skirts.

..

This fabric has a bit of stretch but only crosswise. I decided that I’d try my hand at drafting this one myself. I decided to follow StyleSewMe’s tutorial because I liked hers very much.

..

I paired it with a black and white body suit that I purchased from H&M before I went on my fast fashion fast.

The peeptoe sock booties are from DSW and the purse is a yardsale find.
