Anyway, we have great news: We are going to St. Martin this May with my family! This news made my semester worth finishing and our summer worth living. We are BEYOND excited. This news has sparked some new projects and obsessions for the beach.
This skirt from J.Crew that I saw while shopping but will never be willing to pay $58 for such a small thing. But.....I can sew it myself! I took a sewing class at BYU last semester that was hard core. Truthfully, I probably cried about projects and deadlines in that class about eight times throughout the semester. Note: three of those times occurred during class in front of everyone. Anyway, now I know how to sew and although I'm no pro, I will make this skirt and it will look good.
Obsession/Project # 2:
Alright, this bathing suit has seriously been on my mind nonstop for the past three days. It has cast a spell on me. Unfortunately, Ed believes that $160 for a bathing suit is too much :( So......I will comprimise. I have made the plan in my head and done some research on the internet about sewing on bathings suits. I decided that while I LOVE the fabrics of this suit, what is really drawing me in is the ruffle, the fact that it is a one piece, and the fact that it is strapless. My solution is to buy a bathing suit much cheaper somewhere else that is a strapless one piece and add a ruffle like this one! It's brilliant and I know I can do it, just have to find the time. Or you know, someone could just buy this for me :)
