This post is all about rompers and the latest product of the someday Julie fashion industry.
Yayy, yes, another sewing project. For those of you who are familiar with sewing, i used a dress pattern for the top part, but switched the skirt with shorts. Often times, i draw my own patterns, but i just loved the pattern for the top and had to use it!
Thats thing about sewing, you can make it however you want. Switch the sleeves, change the mini skirt for a maxi skirt, or anything at all! Never forget to be creative and add your own touch to anything you make.
For anyone who wants to sew but doesn’t know where to start, try following a pattern for something simple like an a-line skirt, then move on to more difficult things. This is a great way to learn on your own, and soon enough you’ll be so familiar with the shapes that you can draw your own patterns. The terms are ussually the hardest to understand when first starting to sew, like slip stich, boning or gathering. Luckily, google has all the answers, and if not you can ask me.
Back to rompers,
Rompers are great in the summer. They can be classy and fancy or flowery and flowy or anything at all. The best part is that they are so comfortable!
Enough writting, here’s some pictures!
This scrunchie is super easy to make. All you need is scrap pieces of fabric, a pair of scissors, and a hair tie. I used a little less than 1/4 of a yard of each color, but that depends on how thick the fabric is and how full you want the scrunchie to be.
Esta colita es super fácil de hacer. Todo lo que necesitas son pedazos de tela de cualquier color, tijeras y una colita de pelo. Yo usé un poquito menos de 1/4 de yarda de cada color, pero eso depende en el grosor de la tela y como quieres que te quede la colita.
1. Cut the fabric into little rectangles and cut a tiny hole in the middle of each rectangle. Mine are about two inches by one and a half inches (2in x 1 1/2 in).
1. Corta la tela en rectángulos pequeños y abre un agujerito en el medio de cada rectángulo. Los míos son como de 5 cm por 3cm.
2. Cut the hair tie and string on the rectangles.
2. Corta la colita e inserta los rectángulos.
3. Tie the hair tie back together and spread out the rectangles.
3. Amarra las puntas de la colita y separa los rectángulos.
4. Wear it.
It’s been awhile, a few weeks anyways. College is a busy time, I haven’t quite figured out how to balance everything, but I think I’m getting there, so hello blog!
Here’s a skirt I made over the summer and wore a couple sundays ago. It is deffinitly one of my favorites and I made a blue one for my roommate’s birthday too. This one has a few mistakes with the zipper (I hate zippers) but the blue one came out amazingly.
I went through a coral phase and bought everything in coral, but this skirt tops it all.

I finished the dress! Yay!!!!!! I almost murdered the fabric in the process. Silk is not a good idea if it is your first dress. The dress turned out just how I wanted anyways. I’m so happy!!!! Here’s some pictures.

This a followup of this post.
Today I wanna share my favorite moments of the weekend. On Friday, I went to the Maroon 5 concert, which was totally amazing!!! Adam Levine is a great singer (and dancer) and the band in general is really cool.
When I woke up on Saturday, I saw these pretty flowers on the living room table. It was such a beautiful day, and these flowers made it even more beautiful!
Then I went to a fancy restaurant in Puerto Madero with my family and a good friend. I ate meat (we’re in Argentina, so you basically HAVE to eat meat) and had a delicious “dulce de leche” volcano with ice cream. Yum!
And that’s been my weekend so far.

Today I wanna share my love for plaid with the world….It’s my absolute favorite pattern. Mostly because I love the grungy/90’s feel. This shirt is a Tommy Hilfiger and I found it in my dad’s closet. I paired it with a Zara military-green jacket (because it’s winter in Argentina), Zara dark blue skinny jeans, and vintage platform shoes and purse.
My favorite type of outfit!
