"Easiest Adult Clothing You Will EVER Sew"

 I know that is one strong statement but I wholeheartedly believe it! This peice seriously should take around 5-15 minutes of sewing AND cutting. That is cool huh? I was feeling really down two days ago, really down. I've always been very insecure like most women, unfortunately I think mine at times is a little stronger  then normal. I just felt very unhappy with how I looked and extremely ugly. So ugly that I wanted to cry, hard. I know that looks arent all that matter but its hard to tell that to someone who isnt pretty or doesnt feel pretty. Its so hard to explain what I was feeling and I feel kind of silly talking about it but im thinking I cant be the only one. I just felt such a deep, deep pain. Im sure some wont understand when they see pictures of me they'll probably be confused like "uh this women is and average looking girl what she whinning about" but I wasnt always this way.
 Up until 6th grade I had a speech impediment, which made it hard to make very many friends. It also made me really insecure, especially meeting new people, I couldnt even say my name right because of it. I always had clothing from the thrift store and was extremly skinny and got called names like bean pole and things like that. (Wow this post is not going where I thought it was going, sorry for the downer.) When I got older the names changed, someone once referred to me when I was an 8th grader or freshman as a "Brownbagger" and for those of you who dont know what that is its too crude to explain. So needless to say I have some selfesteem issues that me and God are still working out. I really have to keep in check what life is all about and when I was younger I would dress immodest thinking that that is what made a women attractive. It doesnt, it just makes her look like shes trying too hard and has low standards.

"Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious." -1 Peter 3:3-4 

"She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come." -Proverbs 31:25
I realize that this verse isnt talking at all about clothing but dressing immodest or even too costly is not being wrapped with strength or dignity, its more like being draped in shame and shows the world what you think your worth is. Your saying that you are only beautiful in $100 dollar pair of jeans or people will only look at you if you bare half your chest.

No one could have fixed what I was feeling other then me.  So what I did was grabbed a Tshirt my husband had grumpily threw on the bed ealier that day stateing that it fit dumb. I made that shirt into a very feminine "Blondie Top" that is very flattering. As soon as I started making it I felt way better, and as soon as I put it on I felt completly better.
I felt Pretty.


"10 Minute Blondie Top Tutorial"

What You'll Need:

Medium or Large mens knit Tshirt
Scissors or Rotary Blade
Sewing machine

Step 1) Lay shirt flat
Step 2) Cut in a straight line from bottom of shirt
to arm area.  Depending on your size make the cut 5 inches  inward from the side of shirt

Step 3) Using a diagnol cut, cut a straight line from the side to 3 inches in from the shoulder
Step 4) cut remaining sleeve off
Step 5) Sew the side together, when finished sewing turn inside out and viola. Done.
 Edges dont have to be finished because knit does not unravel.
