It's a teacher jumper refashion... at night... in the basement... Photos are the appropriate quality for a nighttime basement photo shoot.
Here's the before. I used to wear this teacher jumper all the time. My mom got it for me at least 12 years ago. She used to really like to shop at Christopher Banks. I have an apple one, a denim one, and a fuzzy cat one. It used to have a short sleeve blue jacket with it. I'm not sure where that's gone to.
I actually like the fabric. It's sort of a thin cream linen with little children playing outside. I knew I wanted to do a little remake with it but it has sat in my in-progress basket for at least three years. I don't know why it took so long to get it out because this redo took half an hour tops.
I'll be wearing it again this spring! I chopped in off just above the knee and used that fabric to create a belt and two ruffles. Nothing fancy. I had hoped to be able to add a little sleeve, but this was literally every scrap available.
This has be excited to tackle other projects just waiting in the basket!
