So this was a big "organize" weekend. I am a "everything has a place" person (enter my husbands laughter) My husband is a neat freak, so he likes things to just look clean and I like things to be a certain way. Normally it works out fine, and then it seems like everything just needs a gutting and organizing. So I did that over the weekend. It even spilled over onto the blog if you notice the new look, and something else that I will announce tommorow. Another thing I did was gut the kids closets. They have been over flowing with summer clothes and I was getting a little tired of sending Jude back into his room several times to "change into something warmer" I guess he is not as excited about the cooler weather as I am? Well you know what I found when I emptied his room of clothes that don't fit and for warm weather? The poor boy has no clothes. Since the idea of literally buying him a whole new wardrobe seemed over the top, we decided on some ways to make his summer wardrobe (the pieces that still fit) work for winter. So I have a few simple ideas that will be shared the next little while to extend your summer wardrobe. They would totally work for any gender and any size. I might even work in a few for me :) So let's get started today with the easiest. Adding long sleeves to a short sleeve shirt.
Claire top as well, it was 4 something a yard but then shipping was 5 bucks so it came close to 10 for a yard (yikes!) It was a hard pill to swallow since I am cheap, but I am making the best of it. Tuck the knit into the sleeve. Cut where desired for length.
This is where if I was doing it for one of my shirts I would make the sleeves super long.
Jude loves his "new" shirt. I think we are both glad this one gets more use :)
