what i wore

welcome to “what i wore” at the pleated poppy!  share with me your fashion posts and we can inspire each other!  i started this originally as motivation to get out of my daily uniform of jammies or sweats, but now i am encouraged and held accountable to put a few extra minutes aside for myself and try new things.  i’d love for you to join me!

sorry i went MIA last week!  i had to make a quick trip out of town to visit my grandma, then we left for a long weekend of snowboarding with the kids and friends.

what i wore at the pleated poppy

i’ve had these jeans for quite awhile, but haven’t worn them lately because the holes in them got too big.  my dad gave me a pair of his old jeans and i cut them up to patch my holes!  it took a couple hours of slow hand stitching, but i am really happy with how they turned out!

    Would love more detail on how you patched…kind of stitching you did. These look great!

      i wish i knew what the stitch was called! i really just pretended like i knew what i was doing, keeping the stitch as invisible as possible on top, but so messy underneath!

    Love all of these outfits! That top is gorgeous! And I’m impressed with the jeans patch job, very clever. :) I haven’t participated in wiww in such a long time, thanks for doing this for all these years.

    Have you ever used iron on hem tape? I used this to patch my jeans, and it’s holding up perfectly! I don’t know if I could have spent the time you did stitching it. Kudos to you; it looks great!

      i haven’t! but i am definitely tempted. when you bend your knees, do you ever have the hem tape pull loose with all the stretch in that area? or is it just that good? i have another pair of jeans that are going to need a patch job soon…
