From Scratch Olive Green Dress


The fun things about today's outfit:
1. Dress - Made from scratch, no pattern, wing-it-style by ME! 
2. Sweater - Marshals
3. Shoes - Target 
4. Necklace - Friend's Jewelry company.
5. Belt - Thrifted for $1 (real leather)

I seriously love wearing dresses made from jersey! They are so comfy and forgiving! I almost always try to find good jersey when I'm at the fabric store! What are your favorite fabrics to wear? 

I've been starting to study Heaven recently. More so, interested in the whole topic of eternity. That is such a long time. Eternity. It all started when one of my high schoolers asked me a question, "Why does it sound like people who follow Jesus are excited to die?" I love the students just come right out and ask questions. And I love that it isn't coated in religious type jargon and overly spiritualized.

I'm not sure "excited to die" is a way I've ever stated it before. But I am excited to be with Jesus! So I'm studying up on the topic of eternity. I'm widening my knowledge so that I can better explain the topic to them. And as a result I'm getting more excited myself. I love when that happens. You dive into something for purely non-personal reasons, and the lessons learned become deeply and personally meaningful to my own life.

Philipians 1: 23-24
For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ,which is far better. Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you.


  1. I'm truly impressed with you clothing-making skills. That dress is amazing! I want to start sewing things more often...my sewing machine is feeling neglected.

    Enjoy your studies on eternity!
