I did my very first DIY project, y’all!  I’m so stoked on it!  My daughter goes “Why are you wearing a bib?”!  Awesome!

I got this from Honestly WTF which was also featured in Lucky magazine.  It looked simple enough, and you guys might remember I have a bit of an emotional issue with Peter Pan collars.  On the one hand, I love them to bits.  On the other hand, they are often attached to garments that are really way too Kindercare for a woman pushing 40.  So this detachable business is the way to go, cos then I can pair the collar with tougher pieces that compensate for the sweetie-pie factor.  Like leather and leopard and lots of black.

I will recommend that to do this DIY, you should opt for the rubberized flannel, or else sew the ribbon onto the felt instead of looping it through a hole in back.  My ribbon ripped right through the felt because it was so thin after punching the hole.   I ordered a rotary punch through Amazon but it’s not here yet, so my “bib” has no pinholes yet.  I am also button-less at the moment so I am using my mom’s angel lapel pin.  I’ll keep you posted with my other collars; there is black and brown felt on the horizon!

Leather jacket by muubaa, $155 on clearance from Asos.  Favorite T from Old Navy, $4.50.  Pants by Old Navy, $5 on clearance.  Shoes by Aerosoles, $11 on clearance from Loehmann’s, old.  Fake smart girl glasses, $6 from Forever 21.

It was Africa hot today so I kept it super simple in my 2006 Project Runway “Free Tim Gunn” T shirt by Daniel Vosovic and a little skirt I made by cutting a Marc Jacobs dress in half. I love the fabric, but I wore the dress to my mother’s memorial service, so it kinda bummed me out a bit. Now it’s a whole new piece! Thanks, scissors and elastic!
