Most of my little projects end the same way — in frustration.
I get these awesome ideas, figure, how hard could it be? And then I'm off — buying supplies that will later be abandoned to the guest closet, i.e., The Island of Half-Done/Half-Baked Projects. DIY usually ends up DI....why?
And yet, I persist.
Stubborn? Stupid? Mmm, mostly cheap.
My latest quest — a charming tulle underslip, a la Free People. They suckered me in. The peek of chiffonish wisp beneath a too-short skirt? How cute is that? And, how freakishly expensive.
I figured this was one I definitely ought to be able to tackle. I mean, how hard could it be?
This time, not bad. I got a cheap slip from Target and some tulle trim, with ribbon already attached, from the fabric store. I handstitched it on. And, there ya have it, well, I have it, for about $12.
Outfit: Revolver dress and Michael Michael Kors "Brookville" zebra heels.
