Little Balls


Blazer, Forever 21 (with trim added by me). Sweater, Ann Taylor Loft. Skirt, Herman Geist (thrifted and shortened). Boots, Nine West. Earrings, Forever 21. Scarf, Camp Foster “mall.” Cat, Bear.

Below: Coat, Weatherbee (vintage). Purse, Crown Lewis (vintage). Cat, Smunch.

We have a few days left in February…have you thought about the month’s recession challenge? I spent most of the month thinking before I finally decided on a project. I had about a yard of ball trim - not enough to trim the hem of another skirt, but plenty to encircle my waist, edge sleeves, or finish the ends of a scarf. When I found that the color was a perfect match for this jacket, I settled for stitching it around the waistband. I chose hand basting over using fusible web tape so that I could remove it if I tire of the little balls.


As you complete the challenge, either leave me a comment or send me an email. If you blog about your creation, send me the link. If you’re not a blogger, feel free to send a picture and/or description and I’ll include it in a final round-up. Please note that this isn’t a contest – I’d like everyone to share their results for inspiration, not competition.

Very cute outfit (and kitty!). I really like the ball trim on the jacket - very creative!

I think I like the trim on the jacket even better than the skirt! I did crafty for February, now I just need to get those pictures up...

can you trim the Forever21 skirt shorter? or maybe pair the skirt with less outfits/accessaries, since the skirt itself is quite eye catchy.

STILL my favorite all time skirt from your waredrobe.

I've started mine. It's very simple but once again I don't want to spend money if I have to as part of a personal challenge!!

Kasmira, you said we have a few weeks? Do you mean days? If there's still a few weeks then I might even finish the project I was thinking of but thought I'd run out of time for.

Okay, it's pretty dodgy, but here's my entry.

I think I'll put more effort into March!
