Knobbly Knees.

I have been helping my boss clean out her closet and drawers of old things that she no longer wants or needs. I love getting organised and her room looks so much better for it! It also means I get first dibs on her clothes ;) It got me thinking though, and meant I ended up looking at my belongings and deciding if I needed everything I have. Especially seeing as I am moving home soon and I'm sure it won't all fit in my car.. So yes. I decided to get rid of some clothes, and on the pile was a pair of bootcut jeans that made me feel fat. I don't need this jeans, but I do need a new pair or shorts. Therefore, I went Edward-scissor-hands on them, and chopped away. I plan on making them a lot prettier - finishing up the stitching and perhaps even embroidering or generally customising them, but for now they are suitable :) 


I've tried doing something like this before and cutting too short too early, so I went in stages (as you would when cutting a fringe) to make sure I didn't over do it! They're fine, not particularly amazing at the moment but a work in progress.

I'm sorry I've been AWOL - I've been taking a bit of time to recooperate from missing Michael, the long interview trip and working long days. I need to crack on with my essay too so I have no idea when the next post will be, and for that I'm very sorry. Please bear with me.


  1. yay for first dibs on clothes!!

    the shorts look good to me, I can't even cut straight :(

    good luck with the essay!

    1. Thank you :) well, they are no finished so hopefully they will look even better!
