Monday is business day, so what better way to show my work spirit than to don a blazer? I last wore this skirt in the heat of summer–with bare legs and sandals. But it works with tights too.
Blazer: Laundry by Shelli Segal via thrifted
T-shirt: Victoria’s Secret
Skirt: Erin McLeod
Tights: Roots Canada
Shoes: Old Navy
This blazer is thrifted–and it’s seen better days. So I did a little DIY and fixed an errant hem. While I was at it, I embellished the edge with some freestyle sewing machinery.
I bought my sewing machine thinking that it would pay for itself if I hemmed just four pairs of pants. I’ve done that–and so much more! I’m a master of straight lines, but that still gives me lots of options.
Do you own a sewing machine? How do you use it? How did you learn?

Love the blazer appeal, and your complete outfit.
Thanks for your comment! I love a good blazer 🙂
It’s easy to see why; they can fit with absolutely anything. Go with what you love.
You look lovely in turquoise! Such a great outfit 😉
I own a sewing machine but learned how to sew from my grandmother when I was 12, so I’m a little rusty. I’m good at doing simple fixes on thrifted items in my closet but would love to take a class to learn more! Great job on the blazer fix, i haven’t attempted that yet 🙂

Where would we be without our grandmas? It’s great to be able to sew – even if just for simple fixes. I agree that a class would help. I don’t know how to follow a pattern, so that’s limiting. Glad you like the freestyle work on my blazer 🙂
Love the black & blue combo! I don’t sew, but definitely wish I could 🙂

Thanks Annie! Sewing would be a great skill to have. It doesn’t come naturally to me, but I try!
